UK Proposal to Make the Internet “Safe”

Last Updated on December 14, 2021 by John Galt

The UK Parliament is proposing to make the internet safe for children, adults, LGBTQ+ individuals, and everybody else other than those who might have a different thought be guilty of wrongthink. It will also, apparently, protect those in the UK from harmful tweets by Orange Man Bad.

The human cost of an unregulated internet can be counted in:

–mass murder in Myanmar

–intensive care beds full of unvaccinated covid-19 patients

–insurrection at the US Capitol

–teenagers sent down rabbit holes of content promoting self-harm, eating disorders and suicide.

The Online Safety Bill is a key step forward for democratic societies to bring accountability and responsibility to the internet.
