Many bloggers have already received an official email (copy below) letting us know that effective May 24, 2011 MyBlogLog is dead – another in a long line of valuable resources acquired and intentionally killed off.
This is another warning that selling a useful resource to those who want to control the Internet is a death sentence for that solution.
What do you think? Shall we delete our MyBlogLog widgets now or leave them on for a while yet? RIP MyBlogLog.
Watch this video (boring but important – note who is involved) created at Stanford University Forum about the proposed National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace. Read the text on this post about Controlling the Internet and pay close attention to the coverage on Business Week about the recently proposed Internet Identity Authentication Plan.
At about 37 minutes in, what the CEO of McAfee Antivirus says includes these phrases:
“… exponential increase in crime … the amount of malware … amount of insidious things we receive” …“a major pandemic”… “rise of crime” …. “state of terrorism and warfare”
Malware is a pandemic? He equates lack of proof of identity to terrorism. How DO these people keep a straight face?
I have never heard such tripe. Who is less trustworthy than government or the multi-national corporations who think nothing of experimenting on citizens without their knowledge as revealed in Freedom of Information requests and documented by National Geographic’s CIA Secret Experiments.
Truth IS stranger than fiction – this stuff really happened and is still happening. WAKE UP!
This proposal is an extreme threat to bloggers and blogging and I for one am sick of unwarranted fear being used to take away freedoms of all kinds. I for one say not just no but hell no to any more attempts to kill freedom of speech or expand the for-profit Law Enforcement Growth Industry.
If this nonsense actually gets implemented, those who refuse to further risk their freedom by registering for yet another system that can be used against us will either need a separate, private Internet – maybe something similar to the original bbs systems – or give up blogging and using the Internet altogether.
I encourage anyone who knows how to create an independent Internet – possibly using a private satellite – to contact me.
