It has been brought to my attention that my website has been flagged as a ‘security risk’ and since this is the case and there’s no telling how many people have gotten this red flag and are not signing up or visiting my website because of it. Nevertheless, we all know that my website is all about promoting the ‘free’ sharing of information as it relates to higher consciousness, love, brother and sisterhood. Sadly, there are those of us who are very uncomfortable and threatened by such a gesture and will continue to do what has always been done and that is use ‘fear tactics’ and other forms of manipulating the general public away from this kind of energy and information. I may not like everything that’s made available on the internet but I also realize that we all have free will and in a country where our constitution states that we are entitled to free speech; I respect everyone’s lawful choice to use their domain to express them-selves respectfully. It is these reasons that we become more steadfast in not allowing this sort of trickery to deter us from the free sharing and expression of information. The most common websites barred are those that deal with so called “conspiracy theories”, “whistle-blowers”; the occult, spirituality and metaphysics. Again, we must question why are such sites that deal with these subject matters, so vigilantly targeted on a ‘free-will’ planet and ‘free-speech’ society? The latter is more rhetorical in nature. I surmise that almost all sites that are black-listed, barred or ‘flagged’ have truthful information that the puppet masters (seen and unseen) do not want the public knowing. As I’ve always stated; the only difference between us all is level of understanding (information) and once ALL have equal access to information – the playing field is truly leveled once again.
Internet censorship is control or suppression of the publishing or accessing of information on the Internet. The legal issues are similar to offline censorship. One difference is that national borders are more permeable online: residents of a country that bans certain information can find it on websites hosted outside the country. A government can try to prevent its citizens from viewing these even if it has no control over the websites themselves. Filtering can be based on a blacklist or be dynamic. In the case of a blacklist, that list is usually not published. The list may be produced manually or automatically.
Barring total control over Internet-connected computers, such as in North Korea, total censorship of information on the Internet is very difficult (or impossible) to achieve due to the underlying distributed technology of the Internet. Pseudonymity and data havens (such as Freenet) allow unconditional free speech, as the technology guarantees that material cannot be removed and the author of any information is impossible to link to a physical identity or organization. In some cases, Internet censorship may involve deceit. In such cases the censoring authority may block content while leading the public to believe that censorship has not been applied. This may be done by having the ISP provide a fake "Not Found" error message upon the request of an Internet page that is actually found but blocked.
I would love to get you guys insight on this tactic to basically shut down freedom of speech? What do you think we be doing to stop or curtail this kind of manipulation?
