Husbands will have to ask their wives...
...if they want to watch porn at home, Cameron _WARNS_ (emphasis mine).
"Darling, you don't watch any of that nasty smut, do you ?"
"Why of course not, darling, you are all I need, all I'll ever need, for forever and a day".
"Thought so darling. That's good. Darling. It's just we got a saucy letter from our ISP telling us they were going to censor our internet, whether we liked it or not, but if we wanted to, we could put ourselves on the NEW PERVERTS SEX REGISTER (emphasis theirs) and everything would be as normal. For now."
"Oh I don't think we have any need for that kind of filth. I for one, am happy to welcome our new covert/overt censoring overlords."
Cue mad rush to find cheapest monthly VPN that doesn't keep records.
"Darling, what is this charge for 9.99 per month made out to 'Vpnz_R_Us' ? "
"Er, darling, I can explain. But you might like to get a cup of tea and sit down, while I get my story straight, I mean, while I explain everything to you".
I'm still in shock. I don't know where to begin. I feel as if my whole life has been turned around. Everything I thought I ever knew has come into question...
I don't know where to begin. The start is as good a place as any.
My Wife and I have been married for over 14 years. We are soul mates. She is the one for me. And I for her. She is all I have ever wanted. And all I'll ever need. For forever and a day.
I particularly dislike pornography and the kind of smut that degrades women. The exploitation is the worst we have to offer as a species and it just shows how far we have to go in the human race before we can even start dealing with the very real problems that are now facing us. It's why I don't read the Daily Mail.
So imagine my shock, when my Wife cagily broached this subject one evening last week after dinner and one too many bottles of Merlot.
"You do know that I love you, don't you?"
"Yes darling. I do."
"Well, there's something we need to talk about."
"Out with it, my good lady."
"Well the other daaaayyyy, I got this very nasty little letter in the poooooost."
"Really darling, what did it say?"
"Well those nasty men from our ISP are going to be censoring our internet. Rationing the tap of true knowledge and enlightenment that used to be Man's birthright, one and all. And the only way around it is if we sign up for some silly little SEX PERVERTS REGISTER. No ifs or buts."
"That is disgusting darling. We shalln't be doing that. Oh no. You know how I feel about those sex people."
"Well, that is what I wanted to talk to you about darling. You see, I have a secret addiction - it's not that I don't love you, for forever and a day, but, I don't know how to put this - I like to see skinny white girls getting spannered sideways by big nasty black men with 12 inch cocks! There, I've said it."
"You certainly have darling. How long have you been feeling this way?"
"Oohoooohhhh, I don't know, since before I met you. It's not that I don't love you. So I was wondering if we could maybe sign up, well YOU actually for that nasty little SEX PERVERT'S REGISTER - the bill is in your name after all. Then that way, I could keep getting my daily dose of smut and tickle myself into a stupor every day before you get home from work."
I hope by now you are getting the picture of the difficulties I am facing. Obviously I had no idea this sort of thing was going on. Can you see the bind I am in? Do I sign the SEX PERVERT'S REGISTER and keep my wife? Or do I decline to sign it and lose her for ever?
So many things wrong on so many levels. Politically, Technically, Socially, Sexually, etc. etc...
If you read that Mail article, you will see them once again conflating the argument with people that use TOR/VPN.
This is an all out assault. Someone has thought very long and hard about this and they are 'making it happen' with the requisite engineering. They do know how to press those buttons. But it works for them and gives them what they want. Start from a seed of an argument that no right minded individual could disagree with and work up from there until you log on to your state approved terminal with your genitals.
Many on this very website have been saying for sometime now, it's only a matter of time. VPNs will be illegal to use. Proxies too. Bit by bit they will take it down and take it back. Because they are very very afraid. In fact, I never realised they were this afraid. People this afraid are dangerous.
One thing I know is, Cameron et all don't give a fuck about the abuse of children. They have the resources to tackle it and 'backtrace' it and stop it. Nip it off at source. But no, they are too busy using it as the main excuse to spy on and curtail all our rights and liberties and freedoms. They are as bad as the very people that rape young children to my mind. They are perpetrators because it suits their sick and twisted agenda. Images of child abuse will still be available in 10 years time. But the use of VPN/TOR for the average man, will not.
Is there any one out there that can not see what this is really about and where it is really going?
"Do it to Julia! Do it to Julia! Not me! Julia! I don't care what you do to her. Tear her face off, strip her to the bones. Not me! Julia! Not me!"
