You are giving the Howard regime way too much leeway here.

They have a well documented history of buying into the politics of
fear in an attempt to gain more and more power.
NetAlert is but another example.

A plea to Labor: ditch fear-based politics and get real.
Otherwise, you will be found out.

A plea to Conroy: ditch vote grabbing based on overblown threats and
unrealisable solutions and use logic and reason to get your point
to the people. What exactly is your point regarding net censorhsip?

I use the Internet daily for work, education, communication and information.
I do not want my online activities censored or monitored. And I vote.

You got to keep repeating things over and over and over again for the
truth to sink in, to kind of catapult the propaganda.
