The ruling class in Australia is expanding their power to block websites in the name of "safety."
Earlier this year, ISPs in Australia and New Zealand blocked over a dozen websites in the wake of the Christchurch shooting without legal precedent including Zero Hedge, 4chan, 8chan, Voat and BitChute.
Australia will block access to internet domains hosting terrorist material during crisis events and will consider legislation to force digital platforms to improve the safety of their services, officials said on Sunday.Here's what their "eSafety Office" is up to:
I'm sure this power will not be abused!
A 24/7 Crisis Coordination Centre would be established to monitor the online world for extreme violence or terrorist material.The definition of "terrorist" material they can cite to block domains has already expanded within this one article.

- We're just going to block domains hosting terrorist material and domains hosting abhorrent violent material and we're going to fine news media outlets for reporting on it!
