Reset the Net? He who rules the net rules the world!

Anyone today who uses the internet is subject to surveillance. Automatic are trying to mitigate the violations of privacy through better encryption but is this going to be 100% secure? I am sceptical. Censorship is about control and power and unfortunately anyone who uses the net is no more than a slave to this form of media and subject to scrutiny from those who have the power to do so. Vigilance is important and so is freedom of speech. My comments on the Automatic “Reset the net” post were moderated and not posted. Do I detect some sensitivity here? May be it was a cyber glitch but I am posting again so that my opinion is shared. Bloggers and writers have a moral obligation to speak out for the underdog, the marginalized, the disenfranchised, the vulnerable and most of all against injustice. I am passionate about this but yet through intimidation and big brother tactics we may be cowed into silence. This is dangerous and a disturbing submission to the inflexion of those with more power and more money!
