Worse Than the Stamp Act: Internet Government Takeover

Nobody’s Opinion

While the internet has its bad side, (like you can see real life beheadings while sipping your Starbucks double espresso.)…it’s good FAR outweighs the bad….but that’s about to all change.Netscape

I remember when I started using the web. It was around 1997, and I didn’t have a computer in my home. And so, I went to the library and got on Netscape. Remember Netscape? That’s where I found out my son was suffering from a rare sleep disorder called DSPS. (Delayed Sleep Phrase Syndrome) On Netscape, you could get into university websites and read hundreds of doctors dissertations. It’s as if I had hit some kind of goldmine, really, that’s how I felt.

Unfortunately, the sleep doctor at the clinic that I took him to…didn’t read the internet. I told him I had found out what was wrong with my son, but he had never heard of DSPS.  He was a psychologist. Not being able to sleep was a human mental problem to this man. And he was the HEAD of the sleep clinic.

BECAUSE this man was so ignorant, my son was kicked out of high school. (Illegally, but that’s a whole other blog.) He refused to listen to me, and the information that I had found on the internet. Therefore, my son’s whole life was damaged by this one man’s decision.DSPS one

But…information at your fingertips. It’s really incredible. Want to find out how to cut your hair, fix a window? Tie a tie? Anything and everything is on Youtube. Send a picture to  your friend? Done. Tell everyone what you think of Obama? Go ahead! (my personal favorite.) Make dear friends you will never even meet in other countries.

I LOVE it! And this week, Tim Barnes-Lee, the inventor of the internet, has a warning we should all be zeroing on.

While the U.S. Defense Department funded the early start-ups of the web, it was Tim Barners-Lee, who invented a way to make a world-wide web…and this is important: He FREELY gave it to the world. I bet he wishes he hadn’t done that. Not because of the fact that he probably would be the richest man on the earth now, but because the inevitable has happened–Governments and corporations now want to control it and take it over: Tim Barnes Lee

Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist who invented the web 25 years ago, called for a bill of rights that would guarantee the independence of the internet and ensure users’ privacy.

“If a company can control your access to the internet, if they can control which websites they go to, then they have tremendous control over your life,” Berners-Lee said at the London “Web We Want” festival on the future of the internet.

“If a Government can block you going to, for example, the opposition’s political pages, then they can give you a blinkered view of reality to keep themselves in power.”

Yes, it’s a win-win for the government and the corporations, isn’t it? The government gets total access to every single thing you do (control) and can not only sell it to the highest bidder, but control where you go and what you see on the web.  The corporations will also make big money.

And it gets worse:the net three

Federal authorities in the US are using the courts to try to force American-owned technology companies to disclose emails and other data held in the “Cloud” – the vast network of servers where data is stored for customers

The claim would require companies such as Microsoft, Apple and Google to open up all their electronic records to agencies – such as the CIA, the NSA and the FBI – even if it is stored in Europe rather than on US soil.

It would also affect details held about people in this country even if they never use the internet, as companies and even government departments use the services of American-owned companies to hold information in the “Cloud”.

So this means that not only will the NSA and our government be able to listen to anyone over here, (Which they do now) they will be able to listen all the British Parliament’s private conversations, (and scandalous pictures!)  and who THEY talk to in Europe or anywhere. Think of the blackmail. (The royals DO love to go nude.) Think of the intrusion. The NSA will be able to access Parliament and British society services cannot.

Think of how corporations like Apple, is merging with the government, in order to control the internet.

A nobody made this comment:

JC: It’s the nature of capitalism to monetize anything people value, and then hold it hostage to the highest bidder. Look at the misery that airlines have made air travel. They’ve monetized themselves to the max and the passenger is must a mark to be bled dry by drumming up any one of dozens of “revenue streams”. I believe it is inevitable that the internet information superhighway is going to get marked off in high-speed (high-cost) “fast lanes” and slower-speed (lower-cost) “slow lanes”. It’s a pay for play world, and if you can’t pay you’re just screwed.computer two

Tim Berners-Lee is right. The last place on the planet where nobodies can express themselves and learn about what is going on IN the moment is the internet. When they take over control…even if you pay big money to get online, the government can stop you from getting to your favorite site.—-Like the Drudge Report. (And seeing this little blog will be impossible. )

This is worse than the Stamp Act, in my Nobody Opinion.

What happened to my son? Two years later, (after he had been kicked out his senior year) he did a sleep clinic overnight study at Washington University Sleep Clinic, one of the best in the nation…and guess what?

Netscape was right. He was diagnosed with DSPS. Not only that, a young student at the lab used my idea as his PhD theses for graduation. I figured out that DSPS is caused by Bilirubin lights which are shown on premature babies in incubators—- which resets the SCN. The SCN is our little time clock in the hypothalamus which controlled our wake and sleep times. The theory being that being exposed to constant light when young, can change your circadian rhythm.

My son was 2 months premature and spent about 3 weeks under Bilirubin lights.

How did I figure it out? I read a LOT …on the internet.

      • Our beautiful country is run (?) by a geriatric megalomaniac whose assault on the internet is constant , so I should know. Mugabe, said to champion education, should be the first to applaud this wonderful tool, instead, aided by the Chinese our government snoops constantly, providing an internet so so slow and ponderous, its even hard to look for food recipes! Heaven forbid the Charter of Human Rights…Wait in line guys – after all, you guys owe the Chinese a lousy trillion or so…who knows who is next?

      • You know Frankiekay, I’m surprised you even can get to this blog…but immensely glad that you do! Yes, we owe them trillions…it’s only a matter of time. But we won’t need the Chinese, our own American politicians want the same control as your Mugabe.
