They are trying to make p2p illegal or taking a step that way. Next you’ll need a permit to continue work on SAFE which won’t be granted and they will arrest people that run the code.
And for what?
Trying to make government spying easier so they can stop things like the panama papers from leaking or an attempt to conflate damaging and unnecessary secrecy or lack of transparency with privacy.
Trying to impower anti society groups like the RIAA that think they have a right to enclose speech in a toll road and get paid every time anyone expresses anything- this is part of the anti-neutrality or make censorship pay crowd
Also an attempt to empower non contributing rent seekers. An example would be the US ISP model. Instead of free space optical going from one persons solar powered tiny roof top module to the one on their neighbor’s roof to noise carried white space mesh modules in cars and finally to something like Starlink for over seas- instead of that we have an ocean of dark fiber that remains unlit so telecoms can inflate prices, and anti neutrality paid discrimination, so the ISP can be paid to censor and not upgrade their service and paid to maintain artificial scarcity. We don’t have interoperable hot spots so you can ditch a home ISP- we have artificial data caps on our phone, and we are going backwards paying for the equivalent of the long distance scam with crap like Zoom that charges to put an unnecessary data center in the loop to measure your nose and rip off and sell your data. And were have in contempt of public total idiots like Ajit Pai laughing at the US public for screwing the entire public- feeling entitled and very protected in doing so and we have groups like the RIAA screwing the public asserting a dual right to invade and screw the public and we have adware conditioning a theft of attention right to interrupt model of learned helplessness impotency.
But at least its not as bad as Australia where that government creates secret law by copy righting it. Citing anti public law or citing crime as law ‘laws’ is a felony because the public doesn’t get prior permission to cite them. So nothing can be done about them because they can’t be brough up or referenced. That is an idiot’s paradise. Its circular national security logic based on the idiocy of rent seeking on speech.
And this kind of totalitarian privatized utility rent seeker government welfare barron mode that rewards utter thieving is being used in places like Texas, Ohio and Florida to force fossil fuel rent seeking and the natural gas scam- ponzi. They let Skilling out and next thing Texas has some black outs and some gouging and people in these three states are told they will pay protection money to
natural gas providers by law and are being forced to buy natural gas. And gas can never compete cause gas can’t ever compete so instead of .5 cents a kwh off their roof top they have to pay 24 cents a kwh which will go to 50cents a kwh- sounds like Australia where grannies in mobile home parks were getting $600 a month bills to keep the lights on. Its gets better because as it gets hotter if people don’t use less electricity each year they get increasing penalties or more protected profits for non contributing parasite rent seeekers
To make this very British the oligarchs in the UK are trying to levy somethink like the Salt tax which the British East India Company forced on India which forced people in India who needed salt to survive to buy inferior salt for food preserving shipped all the way from the UK when they could freely get it right outside their door.
I suspect the UK has the same problem as the US has had since Enron when the W. Admin being full of crooks shut off half of the criminal justice system to keep its members from getting life terms. When you start having the law as crime problem and you see law being used to foist face value conflicts of interest instead of resolve them you can be sure criminals in your country have found a way to switch off the enforcement of white collar criminal law. And soon enough the only thing that will be considered unjust will be opposing the will of some sovereign self appointed inbred family where the only real rule is they get what they want no matter how wrong or idiotic and where their subjects recognize they are property and the crime comes because resisting them on anything leads to added missery for the entire population because they literally flogg the entire born in prison population for any resistance by any member.
German judges have talked about finding ways to prosecute politicians who don’t uphold actual public protections. We need a way to prosecute in a dissuasive manner any politician who even suggests anti public laws. If they are a liar they should know getting into office will land them in a cell long term- if you have the imposition of the state it should be: criminals need not apply on pain of prosecution and actual incarceration with teeth. If you’ve got a clown that proclaims he’s above the law- he needs to be marched out in a orange jump suit and given a mandatory summary sentance of life with no parole or pardon. They aren’t there to serve themselves or their friends and there needs to be no tollerance of such behavior.
Seems like a logical starting place is for the people to demand the resignation of people who put forward anti public bills and then demand the inquiry into their conflicts to keep them out. They need to lose their presumption of legitimacy. Need to switch from an idiot ruler- law maker model to a representative model. If they don’t represent the best interests of the public they are gone- there is no deference to oppressive anti public criminality no necessary tollerance for a certain amount of metastatic corruption.
What you have here is mistrust of the people and rule by fear which is very friendly to criminality. If there is going to be fear it shouldn’t be the people living in fear.
