Check this out. It's too bad the hot Euro chick at the beginning doesn't get more time to speak.

Is that possible, for all ISP providers to get together and end the open internet and control everything on there?

Secret Plan To Kill Internet By 2012 Leaked?
Some question if report that pay-per-view system to be introduced is a hoax, but wider march to regulate the web is documented

Paul Joseph Watson

| StumbleUpon


ISP's have resolved to restrict the Internet to a TV-like subscription model where users will be forced to pay to visit selected corporate websites by 2012, while others will be blocked, according to a leaked report. Despite some people dismissing the story as a hoax, the wider plan to kill the traditional Internet and replace it with a regulated and controlled Internet 2 is manifestly provable.

"Bell Canada and TELUS (formerly owned by Verizon) employees officially confirm that by 2012 ISP's all over the globe will reduce Internet access to a TV-like subscription model, only offering access to a small standard amount of commercial sites and require extra fees for every other site you visit. These 'other' sites would then lose all their exposure and eventually shut down, resulting in what could be seen as the end of the Internet," warns a report that has spread like wildfire across the web over the last few days.

The article, which is accompanied by a You Tube clip, states that Time Magazine writer "Dylan Pattyn" has confirmed the information and is about to release a story - and that the move to effectively shut down the web could come as soon as 2010.

(Article continues below)

People have raised questions about the report's accuracy because the claims are not backed by another source, only the "promise" that a Time Magazine report is set to confirm the rumor. Until such a report emerges many have reserved judgment or outright dismissed the story as a hoax.

What is documented, as the story underscores, is the fact that TELUS' wireless web package allows only restricted pay-per-view access to a selection of corporate and news websites. This is the model that the post-2012 Internet would be based on.

People have noted that the authors of the video seem to be more concerned about getting people to subscribe to their You Tube account than fighting for net neutrality by prominently featuring an attractive woman who isn't shy about showing her cleavage. The vast majority of the other You Tube videos hosted on the same account consist of bizarre avante-garde satire skits on behalf of the same people featured in the Internet freedom clip. This has prompted many to suspect that the Internet story is merely a stunt to draw attention to the group.

Whether the report is accurate or merely a crude hoax, there is a very real agenda to restrict, regulate and suffocate the free use of the Internet and we have been documenting its progression for years.

The first steps in a move to charge for every e mail sent have already been taken. Under the pretext of eliminating spam, Bill Gates and other industry chieftains have proposed Internet users buy credit stamps which denote how many e mails they will be able to send. This of course is the death knell for political newsletters and mailing lists.

The New York Times reported that "America Online and Yahoo, two of the world's largest providers of e-mail accounts, are about to start using a system that gives preferential treatment to messages from companies that pay from 1/4 of a cent to a penny each to have them delivered. The senders must promise to contact only people who have agreed to receive their messages, or risk being blocked entirely."

The first wave will simply attempt to price people out of using the conventional Internet and force people over to Internet 2, a state regulated hub where permission will need to be obtained directly from an FCC or government bureau to set up a website.

The original Internet will then be turned into a mass surveillance database and marketing tool. The Nation magazine reported in 2006 that, "Verizon, Comcast, Bell South and other communications giants are developing strategies that would track and store information on our every move in cyberspace in a vast data-collection and marketing system, the scope of which could rival the National Security Agency. According to white papers now being circulated in the cable, telephone and telecommunications industries, those with the deepest pockets--corporations, special-interest groups and major advertisers--would get preferred treatment. Content from these providers would have first priority on our computer and television screens, while information seen as undesirable, such as peer-to-peer communications, could be relegated to a slow lane or simply shut out."

Over the past few years, a chorus of propaganda intended to demonize the Internet and further lead it down a path of strict control has spewed forth from numerous establishment organs:

* Time magazine reported last year that researchers funded by the federal government want to shut down the internet and start over, citing the fact that at the moment there are loopholes in the system whereby users cannot be tracked and traced all the time.
The projects echo moves we have previously reported on to clamp down on internet neutrality and even to designate a new form of the internet known as Internet 2.

* In a display of bi-partisanship, there have recently been calls for all out mandatory ISP snooping on all US citizens by both Democrats and Republicans alike.

*
The White House's own recently de-classified strategy for "winning the war on terror" targets Internet conspiracy theories as a recruiting ground for terrorists and threatens to "diminish" their influence.

*
The Pentagon recently announced its effort to infiltrate the Internet and propagandize for the war on terror.

*
In a speech last October, Homeland Security director Michael Chertoff identified the web as a "terror training camp," through which "disaffected people living in the United States" are developing "radical ideologies and potentially violent skills." His solution is "intelligence fusion centers," staffed by Homeland Security personnel which will go into operation next year.

*
The U.S. Government wants to force bloggers and online grassroots activists to register and regularly report their activities to Congress. Criminal charges including a possible jail term of up to one year could be the punishment for non-compliance.

*
A landmark legal case on behalf of the Recording Industry Association of America and other global trade organizations seeks to criminalize all Internet file sharing of any kind as copyright infringement, effectively shutting down the world wide web - and their argument is supported by the U.S. government.

*
A landmark legal ruling in Sydney goes further than ever before in setting the trap door for the destruction of the Internet as we know it and the end of alternative news websites and blogs by creating the precedent that simply linking to other websites is breach of copyright and piracy.

*
The European Union, led by former Stalinist and potential future British Prime Minister John Reid, has also vowed to shut down "terrorists" who use the Internet to spread propaganda.

*
The EU data retention bill, passed last year after much controversy and with implementation tabled for late 2007, obliges telephone operators and internet service providers to store information on who called who and who emailed who for at least six months. Under this law, investigators in any EU country, and most bizarrely even in the US, can access EU citizens' data on phone calls, SMS messages, emails and instant messaging services.

*
The EU also recently proposed legislation that would prevent users from uploading any form of video without a license.

* The US government is also funding research into social networking sites and how to gather and store personal data published on them, according to the New Scientist magazine. "At the same time, US lawmakers are attempting to force the social networking sites themselves to control the amount and kind of information that people, particularly children, can put on the sites."

The development of a new form of internet with new regulations is also designed to create an online caste system whereby the old internet hubs would be allowed to break down and die, forcing people to use the new taxable, censored and regulated world wide web.

Make no mistake, the internet, one of the greatest outposts of free speech ever created is under constant attack by powerful people who cannot operate within a society where information flows freely and unhindered. Both American and European moves mimic stories we hear every week out of state controlled Communist China, where the internet is strictly regulated and virtually exists as its own entity away from the rest of the web.

The Internet is freedom's best friend and the bane of control freaks. Its eradication is one of the short term goals of those that seek to centralize power and subjugate their populations under tyranny by eliminating the right to protest and educate others by the forum of the free world wide web.

Here are some eloquent and hopeful responses to this article on Digg.com:

http://digg.com/world_news/Secret_Plan_ ... 012_Leaked

It's going to be hilarious to watch their profits evaporate when they try to pull this crap. Who is going to pay $50 a month for the same corporate swill that everyone is rejecting on TV and newspapers? Their TV audience, especially among the prime audience of males 18 - 35 is just vanishing. But do they care if they destroy the internet? Maybe they're so wealthy that the crackdown on freedom of speech is more important than ISP corporate profits..

-----------------------------------------

If the internet were to be "shut down", the greatest tragedy is that there is absolutely no alternative at this point in time. The grass roots MUST start working on alternative means of mass communication, like obtaining radio stations, am and fm, ham radio, mailings and whatever else people can think of. We, the people, must be able to network and support these methods of communication. The internet is an awesome weapon of Truth. The NWO absolutely knows this. They have unleashed their dogs and they will try to shut it down, some way shape or form. It's time to prepare for it!

---------------------------------------------

True..

None of the allegations would surprise me at all. When you think about it, the Internet is too good to be true. Especially in these times of mass media buyouts, total domination and compartmentalization, government infiltration and sanctioning of television networks, mass censorship, a majority of what we see, read and hear under control of a few corporate empires which dictate govt. approved content, and the MSM utilized as propaganda orifice for "elites" and government pro fascism pro war agenda while turning a blind eye- refusing to report what they don't want us to see if the story doesn't fit the plan. The Internet is a breath of fresh air! I for one certainly don't take it for granted. I am extremely thankful Internet exists in its present state for truth in these times of universal deceit, lies, cover-up and massive manipulations in what has become "our" government. Where would we be without it?

The Internet is the last truly democratic medium in existence that is not controlled. They don't have stranglehold over it like everything else. The Internet hasn't been dumbed down, sanitized, corporatized, censored and tailored to fit their agenda, like everything else. They don't decide the content or what we see and have access to as they do their CIA sanctioned, controlled print media and television corpocracies. We do. We the people decide. We make the Internet what it is, not the government. This is undoubtedly frustrating for them. The Internet is like the wild west. Eventually they will take it too. And kill it. It's inevitable. Internet2 is on the horizon. The shutdown won't happen all at once as to cause "panic". They will slowly break it down piece by piece over time. Slowly grind to a halt. And it eventually will be rendered obsolete, inoperable. Just like they've done with our freedoms, Bill of Rights and dismantling our Constitution. While we are sleeping. Slowly as not to have anyone notice. Certainly the idea has crossed their minds a few times at least right?..probably showed up as "agenda" item on the "super secret!" "ultra covert" Bilderberg roster more than we'd care to realize...

----------------------------------------

"Americans think the danger is terrorism. They don't understand that Terrorists cannot take away habeus corpus, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution. Terrorists cannot suspend the constitutional government, abolish the separation of powers. Terrorism cannot pick us up, shut us up, or arrest us. The threat of terrorism is nothing like the threat of our own government in the name of fighting terrorism." -- Paul Craig Roberts, Economist, nationally syndicated columnist and 'Reaganomics' founder.

This man knows the score: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=At1b00zxYkA

--------------------------------------------

It has nothing to do with money, they don't care about that. They are starting to realize the power of alternative media... and they are starting to lose their foothold on the people.

Their plan is to keep us stupid about what is going on around us.... the internet is a way for us to find an alternative view on the BS they are trying to force down our throats.

If they kill the internet, they kill our mode of communication..... just like in any war, one of the first things you do is take out the enemys ability to communicate with eachother.

--------------------------------------------

criminalize file sharing OF ANY KIND? so if I, as an artist, decide to share my music files of my own music and tell people to pass them on it's sposed to be a criminal offense then? yeah I don't think so. good luck f*ckers. The "music industry" ie Sony and Pals are on their way out and have been already for years. Simon Cowell case and point.

Chertoff and Neocons don't cross my lines. YOU are the terrorist, not us. There are no more warnings bitches. Be prepared to be prosicuted by jury of your peers. You may be hanged for your neoconistic treasons. You were warned and justice will prevail.

there's a zillion ISP's, I doubt most of them would really want to comply with such neocon malarky, as it would affect their bottom line and drive them out of business.

BTW, there is no stopping the "free" internet, altho these creeps may try. It's software (we have it) hardware (we can maintain it) and connective wires/broadcast signal (we can lay our own, and ground is common and also signals can be modulated onto existing wires/signals such as powerlines fairly easily).


"Do you think that's really a chair your fat-ass is sitting on NEO?" quote Bill S PReston Esquire from Bill and Ted's matrix adventure

-----------------------------------------------

It simply can't be true. Have you seen the youtube video? A little "stunt" halfway through proves that these guys cannot be taken seriously ;P

Interesting article though: all credit to the site for being NPOV.
All you guys believing it is true... sorry.

Interesting idea though, and NIN in the background rocks :P

---------------------------------------------

If THEY want to create the internet 2. let them.....
the fed ruins everything it touches, we will just step in and create a completely public based internet 3 that uses some other means of communication that does not require the current infrastructure. We are smarter then THEY are in greater numbers.

----------------------------------------------

Everyone needs to contact their ISPs and tell them you will cancel their service if they decide to go along with this. The last couple years when renewing my ISP I always mention that I will cancel if forced onto Internet 2. Unfortunatly I think the transition has already began. Service is not what it used to be.

-------------------------------------------------

I believe they will try to shut down the Internet most definitely. That
is definitely their design. However, when you consider the Internet;
design + intent rarely = result.

The 'original' Internet doesn't not look a thing like it was designed to
look like. It's creators will laugh or spin in their graves to see all
the porno and snark in their cerebral higher
education/military/research net.

An example of design + intent not = result. The death of Napster didn't
end filetrading. Filetrading after Napster is at an all time high.

We will have the corporate net 2.0. We will probably also at the same
time have the other net, the older, freer, wilder net accessed via sneak
tech and 'pirates'. Those free, snarky, politically incorrect blogs
will be accessable by some technology in 2012. Either that tech hasn't
been invented yet or I am unaware of it. All I do know is, change and
challenge is the watch word, nothing stays the same. Today, pen drives
the size of pens carry gigs of data. 'Pirate' may yet be a synonim for
'Robin Hood of Free Thought.'

There are technologies yet to be invented in 2012 that may make
accessing Free Web possible with out needing an ISP.

Remember, they once said that the modern DVD was pirate proof.

Some Bytes For Thought

----------------------------------------

Look, it's true that many corporations would like to exercise more control.

But that doesn't mean we're facing some dramatic takeover from the (nonexistent) NWO or whatever. You're being too paranoid.

Bury

It would be pretty hard to do. The internet transmission protocol (or language) is called TC/IP and it was designed to reinvent a transmission path spontaneously in the event that a chock point gets established. TC/IP was designed by the military as way of continuing communications in the event of one (or many) rebroadcast "nodes" gets knocked out by an enemy. TC/IP is self regenerating--and the messages still get through.

You can gain access to the internet wirelessly, by satelliate, by cable or by ( DSL) telephone lines. Once you're on you can set up a web site. Private companies like google index all the sites and make them available for searching. Even if ma bell created a choke point for all but their web sites--TC/IP would find away around it and find an alternative pathway to your site.

Now if someone bought all the searching companies and all of the access companies--something that no company has done--then yes they could stop the internet--but then you wouldn't have much of anything to use it for.

As I understand it, the basis of the Internet is a group of military mainframes. If that's true, the government could theoretically shut it down whenever it wanted.
However that would be 'killing the golden goose', so to speak.
With the current state of the economy, it's understandable that the government would want more tax dollars out of the internet, and corporations just want more money, period.
So I can see an 'official' Internet that costs an arm and a leg, and a 'pirate' Internet used by everyone else...

Hi,
The US government can and will shut down American's access to the internet whenever it wants to. Just like it can turn off GPS.
CERN (European Research group that runs the Haldron Collider on thr French/Swiss border) has already developed its own Internet, independent of Internet 1. So have many other institutions. We will just de-volve into many private Internets, not one global one.
The US government will stop underground Internets by not letting people inside America access any site from any other country.
I think there will be a lot of protests, but given the tough laws we live under, we will just eventually accept Internet 2.

W: But the question is, is the government trying to suppress free speech because it's a threat to the New World Order, as conspiracy believers are claiming? (almost everyone on youtube believes that there is a NWO) Is there a secret society that wants to control everyone and take away free thought and free speech? Or is that all BS too?

Here's what momopi told me about this. I hope he doesn't mind me posting it.

"The short answer is, yes. If internet communications become a threat to national security, the government can order all ISP's to pull the plug, and interrupt wired and wireless data transmissions abroad. Our military can jam or even shoot down satellites since 1962 (Starfish Prime ASAT).
..............................

The article is BS, but the government's capability to restrict or shut down internet communications is real.

Let's start with the basic user access. Almost all internet users in the US goes through an ISP. If the government orders all ISP's to shut down, that'd be it. No cable model, DSL, satellite feed, or domestic dial-up.

You could dial foreign ISP's with your modem, but that's not realistic considering the phone charges. Foreign-owned satellites would be ordered to stop internet data transmission over North America, or be jammed or shot down by a SM-3 missile.

From the backend, the bulk of internet traffic routes through limited number of backbone providers. If they're shut down, the internet would be unusable or slowed to a crawl.

There are only 13 master root servers for the whole internet. Kill them and internet traffic wouldn't know where to go.

You could setup your own servers and dial-up service at home, but that'd be like the old BBS days and not anything like the internet today.

Freedom is only maintained when people actively protect it and doesn't abuse it. To draw an analogy, credit card companies only do business in countries where they can make a profit. If enough people abuse the credit system or steal from it, making it unprofitable, then the credit card companies would shut down. Despite the numerous credit fraud problems we have in the US, it's still a profitable business, and thus it exists and is widely available in the USA.

Free access to the internet is kind of like that. So long as the government consider it a benefit and the people don't abuse it too much, the freedom of access will be maintained. But if enough people steal copyrighted music and video from bittorrent, then the government will eventually step in and regulate peer to peer services. And if the internet ever becomes a threat to national security, then the government will order to have its plug pulled."

Here is an interesting and eloquent response to this subject from Digital Point Forums, and online revenue sharing site.

http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1173842

"Even if it were a desire and global collusion of governments possible, human psyche suggests that inherently beneficial inventions have a way of overcoming all obstacles including government intervention. The real problem is fear mongering and misleading information by power brokers who see their wealth (or control if you will) diminish faster than at any time in history.

The internet is the one single global tool that offers equal footing (with respect to information) for every single person regardless of wealth (ok, subject to access etc etc). At the speed of light we can connect to real and fabricated information better than any time in our known history. This is exciting for the future, but seen as threatening to "traditional" power brokers who know no boundaries when it comes to protecting their "agenda."

When you box any living creature into a corner with no option for exit, there is no choice. Attack is an involuntary movement of self protection. Traditional governments and behind the scenes power brokers are starting to feel trapped and only beginning to accept or understand the true power of the internet (which is nothing more than instantaneous information and collaboration by disparate communities of like minded people for the betterment of their own or their own community's situation).

The internet is one large audit vehicle. The balance of power hangs in the ability to encourage, accept, digest and ultimately utilize for the benefit of everyone, information that is constantly challenged and checked by global peers of equal footing (ie every single internet user has the opportunity to be heard, vote and form an opinion on any subject they choose).

The onus of responsibility will always weigh heaviest on those that "know." Yes, the internet has bad elements. You can't have a community without representation by all walks of life. The magic in a global community of instantaneous connections, is that I can now audit your credibility just as fast.............. and make decisions accordingly.

This one fact is what scares governments and power brokers more than any other ingredient of the internet. Wealth and power typically grows through arbitrage situations. The wealthier or more powerful you are the more "arbitrage" situations that are presented to you. Arbitrage is nothing more than information before anyone else.......

So, think about that situation for a minute and you start to understand why the internet is the greatest tool for the masses, but seen as the evil enemy of traditional thinkers............ If you can audit any situation quick enough you eliminate or reduce the potential for manipulated arbitrage situations.

Arbitrage is not the same as investing and not the same as "building" your wealth through value added pursuits. Arbitrage results on a large scale through the ability to manipulate markets and thinking on a grand and gross scale (at least where governments and power brokers are concerned).

Using a hypothetical case study to put some literal example into this post, say ACME TRADITIONAL BUSINESS, INC, a global multinational company worth 300 billion dollars is in danger of going broke - what do they do? Fortunately for them, they've made plenty of "sound" investments in the form of political donations to "friends," who realize that if ACME goes broke their lifestyle suffers.......... (this is of course hidden by the veil of how bad it would be for "everyone" if ACME goes broke)....

ACME and friends can't just turn the light switches off and take their bat and ball and go home. They are too large to be unnoticed. The only way you can protect bigger than life companies is by being totally transparent with your actions at a scale that almost belies belief............

So, if indeed the internet was a target for greater regulation (as is the case in Australia presently) or worse, and the internet is the largest industry in the world, then it would take a catalytic event of proportions we can not even imagine, for there to be no internet.

I do believe there is quantifiable support at government levels and "money men" to try and control the internet (ie create yet another arbitrage situation for themselves), but I am equally optimistic and enthusiastic that any attempt to do so, will simply end up squashing the perpetrators of the plan.

Bottom line: love it or hate it, we have instantaneously connected ourselves in ways that we can never change, and in many ways why would we want to? Over time, evolution will help with making it better and more efficient etc, and who knows, maybe it will be replaced by something even better, but the basic principle of connected communities that know no boundaries will continue to grow - regardless of oppressors, governments, power brokers and naysayers. To be around when history unfolds is quite remarkable. To be a participant in history, with all its ups and downs, is something we will all look back from a rocking chair and smile about.

To all - A Happy New Year - The future is what you make of it, not what is presented to you."

It's been out for a long time. If they were to do that, many people would just say, "f-ck it. i dont need internet." Then they'll give in and give us our internet back.

Thank god for the next administration, if they wouldn't pull the plug on the internet.
