Dear Mr Tanner,
I am writing to voice my concerns on the introduction of a mandatory filter of all internet traffic in Australia.
I think it is undemocratic and the system of censorship poorly executed. I don’t think it is appropriate for a government to pick and choose what information is available to and hidden from society.
If I was interested in the government wasting my money on an internet censorship programme, I would move to China.
There are better ways to protect vunerable users of the internet from damaging content. This could be through optionally installed software or through diligent parenting.
I hope you can voice my opinions during parliament sitting and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on the matter.
