For The Children: U.K To Unleash World’s Toughest Regulations On The Internet


The UK is set to unleash internet safety czar on Google, Facebook, and Twitter.

The UK government has proposed a plan on regulating internet safety. The “Online Harms” plan will cover issues such as violence, terrorism, encouraging suicide, the spread of disinformation and fake news, child exploitation and cyberbullying.

Social media companies will face huge fines if they fail to live up to their “duty of care” to internet users. There is much more to this ‘online harms’ proposal. I suggest you read the entire document.

Companies that fail to live up to requirements will face huge fines, and senior directors who are proven to have been negligent will be held personally liable. They may also find access to their sites blocked.

The new measures, designed to make the internet a safer place, were announced jointly by the Home Office and Department of Culture, Media and Sport. The introduction of the regulator is the central recommendation of a highly anticipated government white paper, titled Online Harms, published Monday in the UK.

The regulator will be tasked with ensuring social media companies tackle a range of online problems, including:

Incitement of violence and the spread of violent (including terrorist) content

Encouragement of self-harm or suicide

The spread of disinformation and fake news

Cyberbullying

Children’s access to inappropriate material

Child exploitation and abuse content More

They are constantly playing the “safety card” all while taking away more and more freedoms and privacy. They just want to be able to ban any speech that they don’t like. It really is just that simple.

The UK is becoming a totalitarian state. The UK has no equivalent of the U.S. First Amendment of the Bill of Rights because they have no Second Amendment.
