The censors down under: the ACMA gambit on misinformation and disinformation : Comments

By Binoy Kampmark, published 17/8/2023

Gone is the frontier utopianism of an open, untampered information environment, where bright and optimistic netizens could gather, digitally speaking, in the digital hall.

Another dose of logic.

Worry not!

There once was a time, not long ago, we needed not social media.

Itíll be a good thing gone; along with television, rendered useless by banality.

When you have a voting system that allows a party with less than a third of the primary vote to be the government, you are already rooted. This one we have now is not the slightest bit shy about its totalitarian aims, and the so-called opposition isn't interested in actually opposing. There is no need for the far-Left Albanese to censor us; he doesn't take any notice of what we do say, and continues down the path to totalitarianism.

I assume that we are all aware that some of the things we all say here
can easily be assumed to be misinformation.
If I say that Global Warming is a load of rubbish an ACMA censor who
happens to be a Global Warming fanatic will demand my comment be
removed. Unless there is a method to tell everyone else what has been
done to my posting no one would know.
A note listing whose posts had been deleted when you log in perhaps.
However letting everyone know what I wrote would be in contravention
of ACMA's order.
Do all posts have to be submitted for approval ?
If not so now, then it would not be long before they think of that.

Somehow Graham, we need a method to tell us all what is going on.
I think this legislation is coming what may, and there is nothing that
can stop the government.
Even if the Labor Party loses the next election it would take a while
for the next government to remove it, presuming they they want to.

I agree with the government on this one. Way too much misinformation online and the publishers/platform providers need to be held to account for what they publish/allow!

All other print media are required to validate their information before going to print.

What Albanese and the Left in general call 'misinformation' or 'disinformation' is just things they don't want to hear, and it is usually the truth, which they also don't want to hear.

When I say left, I include the Morrison Liberals. Morrison was into censorship up to his neck.

I'm not sure that I can think of any Australian politician who believes in freedom of speech these days.
