End/Reduce Collection of Data from ISPs

Comment 29th January 2015

ISPs have been bullied and cajoled into keeping vast quantities of information about every single action a person takes online, and being well versed in computers, I can avoid this if I so wish.

Therefore, those who are most dangerous and require monitoring are completely able to ignore this and pass straight through the net, no matter how many 'restrictions' are placed on it.

It criminalises the innocent, leading to paranoia about something that should be essentially private. Do not trade any more of our freedom for security, if anything we should be given our freedom back, and refuse to live in fear.

Why does this matter?

The internet should remain as it always has been: a kind of Wild West for ideas, great, terrible, or even downright nasty as it can be.

It is as free a place as there could ever be in the world, and subjecting it to the kind of bullying nanny-knows-best mentality that has pervaded the rest of British life is a great shame – it is the last place that true freedom exists inside the UK.

Therefore, those who are most dangerous and require monitoring are completely able to ignore this. Monitoring the internet so closelty criminalises the innocent, leading to paranoia about something that should be essentially private. The dangers of the internet should be managed by families and respected figures, not the state.
