Australian communication rape

Using the Internet to communicate thoughts and expose corruption. Opposed to the Governments line, 'Material on the Internet that would be regarded by a 'reasonable person' as inciting violence, offensive and for 'menacing purposes'.

Don't be fooled by the Government. For it depends how a person thinks and what side they're on.

The term 'reasonable person' is? Could be anyone in power, with a bias? Who doesn't want to be exposed? Or who has a, Noble Cause, and who wants to kick your butt?

In 1838, Birney wrote the following:

"I have not one helper not one from whom I can draw sympathy on this topic! Again he faced censure and threats of violence from mobs while he believed, that if ever there was a time, it is now come.

I am aware that many object to the severity of my language, but is there no cause for severity?

I will be harsh, as harsh as the truth, and as uncompromising as justice. On this subject I do not wish to speak or write with moderation.

No! Tell a man whose house is on fire to give a moderate alarm. Tell a mother to gradually extricate her babe from the fire into which he has fallen, but urge me not to use moderation in a cause like the present.

I am earnest. I will not equivocate. I will not retreat a single inch and I will be heard."

For instance: Any person who makes an application for an Apprehended Violence Order will get the court to have one made out in their favour, no mater what. Because what has to be proved is that the applicant has a reasonable fear? A defendant's claim the applicant doesn't have a reasonable fear, simply doesn't exist. Reasonable, means people are allowed to have a fear and they can tell the court, that, that it is in fact the case. Now the defendant has to prove otherwise. It is simply not done. The court has no alternative but to believe that the applicant has such a fear, whether that be true or not. And then and Apprehended Violence Order is ordered by the court.

In this case "material on the Internet that would be regarded by a reasonable person as offensive and for menacing purposes or incites a violent act etc..."

Firstly, are Richard Alston and Chris Ellison reasonable people? You might like to take that one at a time, because I'm sure they're unique individuals, but who both work for the Government.

[And at this time the Government is part of the Coalition of the Killing and taking part in criminal acts, that need to be exposed. They're killing innocent people, in and illegal and degrading war, and committing crimes against humanity, in Iraq and Afghanistan.]

So are Richard Alston and Chris Ellison reasonable people?

If your answer is yes then why are they trying to rape communication in the first place?

If your answer is yes then what about the losers who eventually, take their place? Will they be reasonable?

If your answer is no then they're going to get you anyway.

Says a lot for a reasonable person. Whosoever reasonably wants you arrested shall arrest you. Using their rule of law, in their institutions, and by using their terms.

Even if they give you a reasonable warning then someone else posts an article with your name on it. Do you think you would get a reasonable opportunity to defend yourself with Legal Aid?

Is this why citizenship has been added to the school curriculum instead of social skills, conflict resolution and communication?

Australia you're in deep shit. What about the e-mail I just got saying, the e-mail I didn't send was sent with a virus? Do you think I could be reasonably charged for the e-mail I never sent?

Can you wait for the Australian Patriot Act?

On the road to Basra, ITV was filming wild dogs as they tore at the corpses of the Iraqi dead.

"Just for the record,'' the cameraman said to me. Of course. Because ITV would never show such footage.
