That this is really a parental / education issue and attempts at Govt regulation will be a bad joke. For instance Torrents, school exchanges or overseas vacations plus Tor-VPN and ISP mistakes etc, will all make this unworkable. It also stinks a little of high-handedness or religious undertones or moral preaching etc. Plus it'll lead to more surveillance capitalism / state tracking just because 'they can'. At best it'll be ineffective. At worst, it will add to the Privacy Apocalypse in new & definitely unexpected toxic ways....
