The Federal Government is planning to monitor the Internet, including blogs, to hunt down those who’ve been critical of them.

Admittedly, the article may be biased; they haven’t mentioned why our glorious government thinks blog monitoring is a good idea in the first place. Let’s be fair: they may have a perfectly good, valid, reason. Now let’s be realistic: that is probably not the case.

We already have the Internet censorship scheme that our government swears is going ahead. We already have the issue that the government is blocking Wikileaks for being too critical of censorship. And now we find that the government is planning to monitor blogs.

Shouldn’t we be caring more than we are?

  1. What?! That is absolutely ridiculous. I can’t even find the right words to explain how I feel about this. I’d be beyond pissed if the US government tried to monitor my blog posts. Everyone should be assumed innocent unless proven otherwise. Blogs need not be monitored unless there’s sufficient reason to believe that a specific blogger is being a threat.
