Australia plans tougher social media laws

Australia plans tougher social media laws

According to a new law proposed by the Australian government, social media executives could spend up to three years in prison and their firms be fined 10 per cent of their turnover if they fail to quickly remove violent material from their platforms. The government will present the law to the parliament next week.

You'd have to get these execs into Australia first. Australia is going to need to use Chinese media soon

4chan's system is set to auto-delete all threads past a certain posting limit, and also has auto-deletion on archive, so any arguments they make regarding content is already being auto-resolved making their bill moot (hue) and their requests resolved before they even made them. The only remaining argument is that g00k must have precog powers, but that would only make them look stupider in everyone's eyes. So the threat against 4chan is empty and requires a lack of understanding towards both its system and the bill being passed, jointly. Nice "journalism" job there nypost and cnbc.

This won’t solve anything though. There’s always some angry dumbass who will grab his preferred weapon and kill somebody. That has been the case before Facebook, before 4chan, and before the internet.

Again we attempt, very poorly, to attack the symptoms of the problem while staunchly ignoring the disease. I've sure this is the solution.🤦

If we're going by the precedence Australia has set, then let's arrest Macron as soon as he touches down on American soil for violating 1st Amendment Rights against the yellow vests.

Face jail or more likely in 4chan's case spam Australian social media with violent images until they get bored.

Another assbackwards “solution” to a serious issue. As if doing this will thwart perpetrators of violence. Since as everyone recalls, prior to the Internet and social media, there was virtually no violence.

Totalitarianism is alive and well in the West, more so than at any time since the fall of the Berlin Wall. And now, we are backsliding into it instead of coming out of it.

How western politicians always come down so hard on peripheral issues in an attempt to avoid addressing the primary causes of this particular problem is astounding. Of course the primary problem is of their own making so I guess it’s understandable after all. They wouldn’t want us to stop believing in their competence to perform their core responsibilities would they.
