Just a cheap excuse to control the internet

March 30, 2018

That is really how I see it. As firstly there is no clear and present threat that even remotely justifies rolling out legislation to deal with fake news. There are of course occasional risk and mishaps that the current armoury of laws can adequately deal. Even so these occurences do not differ from occasional cases where planes, trains and cars crash due to either human abuse or malicious acts. But no one will ever suggest for one moment since there is a clear valence between cars and death along with lost of limb…both the PIE and ECP should be turned into a giant canal or bicycle lane.

That is because everything that is new comes with risk and that is part and parcel of what it means to be part of an experiment.
