(A.S. Neill) We have a natural luxury in the underground computer world called freedom of speech. As soon as you turn on your hardware and connect yourself to the nets, you are able to say whatever you like. Of course, if your opinions are radical or extreme you will find that many people will disagree with you and argue for their way of looking at certain subjects. But they will not FORBID you to say whatever you feel for. If you are a nazi or racist or a simple madman, the people on the net will disagree and reject you - but they will not stop you physically. There is nothing wrong with this freedom. You may say that a madman may convince others to believe in him, but on the net YOU have the possibility to stop that with your own arguments. The madman cannot stop you, and you cannot stop him. You all have the freedom of speech and it is working just fine. Everybody feels a mental freedom that they cannot experience in the "real world" where everything is controlled. Controlled and stopped if it is not suitable. The reason why I am writing these basic facts is because this freedom is on its way to disappear. The networks are the last frontiers for the natural human right to say whatever she feels for. The government who simply wants its own personal benefit does not like this. It want to stop this activity and return to a ruling position. Since it cannot stop the networks, the government want to CONTROL it. We all know what that means. If they get control, they will sort out everything that is unsuitable and put an end to it. The net will be like the rest of our media. News papers, radio and television are all controlled by the government. The argument for controlling the modern media is that these media are one-way only. You have no possibility to argue with the media about their news. If a fascist was given a two-hour live show on television that would not be a discussion between two parts. Only the fascist himself would be able to speak, and the rest of the country just had to listen. Without discussion and arguments, the fascist would be able to convince people easily. This argument is not good. People are not born to be media-zombies that believes everything that is said. We are rational human beings that are able to make an own opinion. This "rationality" can take many forms. The fascist would say that his opinions are rational, while the opponents would claim the opposite. I believe that modern media are also two-way, but nowadays less effective. You have the freedom to draw your own conclusions from statements. But this is something that the government does not want you to do. That is why they openly have censored fascists and other unsuitable opinions on television. If fascists are not allowed to speak, then the common belief is that everything that is said in the media are true and good, since the government have taken away everything that is bad. It is now we are becoming zombies. We do not have to draw own conclusions about what is bad and what is not, since the government has taken away everything bad. Hence, everything that is said must be good. It is completely different with the nets. Here, we KNOW that what is said is not controlled, so we are obliged to draw our own conclusions about what is good or bad. If we are not given all information our conclusions may be wrong, but since the nets are the ultimate two-way media we have access to loads of information. After we have studied these we can once again begin to draw conclusions. Now the government wants to control the nets. They have not succeeded yet, but will most certainly do so if nothing radical is done. The reason for this interest in the nets are of course plain survival hidden in other arguments. On the nets, people are able to have extreme opinions without the threat of being put into jail. But people have also a possibility to have other opinions. If we take away the madmen, what is left? That would be the so-called normal people. This may sound like a very good idea, but when you consider what will happen to the madmen it does not. They will continue to spread their ideas underground, and now they will not meet any resistance. They will pick their audience with care and only choose people who they know that they can convince. Is this what we want? Do we want to lose our freedom? Or do we want to fight for it? Fight the bad, do the right. But never let any one tell you what is right or wrong without discussion. With the nets it is easy to listen to all the arguments. But if the government takes control, there will be only one argument and you must trust that one. If you do not, then you will become confused since there is no other alternative available any more. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Jan Bruhn has apparently not wiped his ass.
