**Are the days of the free and open Internet numbered?**  The Internet is certainly used for all sorts of horrible things, but it has also allowed ordinary people to communicate on a mass scale that would have been unimaginable decades ago.  In the old days, if you wanted to reach large audiences of people with your information you always had to go through corporate gatekeepers.  **But today, anyone with an Internet connection can literally broadcast whatever they want to say to the whole world.** _Personally, my wife and I have always been amazed at how many people we are able to touch all over the planet from our little home in the mounta

Washington regime sacrifices own fake news media in Russia to push RT out of US
The Foreign Agents Registration Act - and RT was proclaimed to be one - , requires that the television company discloses to the authorities its financial statements, staffing tables, personal data with addresses and phone numbers of employees, most of whom are Americans. 
The law was passed as long ago as in 1938 to fight nazi propaganda. For an intentional violation of its provisions, a fine of up to 10 thousand dollars or a prison term of up to 5 years is given.

Motivations & Impersonations
https://woollymammothtc.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/83a61e759284e01c80d632c4d8b7143c.jpg

Therapy is a good thing. Take it in whatever form it manifests itself into at least within a moral landscape. 

Right now as I write this it is 4:00 am. My mind is firing and won’t shut down. If I was on facebook nobody would ever know this fact. I was surprised when I first arrived here on steemit. The #introduceyourself tag included many personal photos dated upon the beginning of a blog career.

I was lead to believe this was more of an anonymous place to hang. To my surprise many people are very personal with their lives here. So much so, that there are health drives to pay for steemian’s medical expenses. 

Are the personas here the same as the ones on their facebook or any other social media platforms? Well if you said “who cares” flip to the bottom and upvote. 

However if you are interested, keep on reading!
Sometimes I think to myself that I definately share more here then what I do when I am on facebook

Russian MPs pass foreign agent bill for media in ‘mirror response’ to US
Lawmakers in Russia's lower house of parliament have voted in favor of forcing media outlets, which are funded from abroad, to register as foreign agents. It's in response to similar pressure placed on 'RT America' in the United States.

How many Russian trolls does it take to influence Brexit vote?
The claims around alleged Russian meddling in British politics has been stirred by allegations that fake Twitter accounts attempted to influence the Brexit vote. But while the mere suggestion was enough to make mainstream headlines, little was said about the “infinitesimal” quantity of tweets involved.

Get ready for a whole lot more site blocking in the EU, thanks to a new consumer protection law
https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/EU-law-1280x720-1024x576.jpg

European Union lawmakers have approved a new consumer protection regulation that, among other things, allows for the wholesale blocking of websites without the need for judicial authorization.

The reasoning seems innocuous enough on the surface. More than a third of online shops and booking websites were found to be breaching EU consumer laws, when a survey was made a few years ago. So new rules are needed to make enforcement of those laws more effective.

Under the new Consumer Protection Cooperation (CPC) regulation—which, like all regulations, introduces uniformity to its enforcement across the EU—member states must be able to get help from domain registrars to identify rogue traders, conduct “mystery shopping” investigations, and order the “explicit display of a warning to consumers.”

The Steemit Issues - Arguments From The Other Side - PART 1 - Censorship
https://c1.staticflickr.com/7/6056/5898828677_e4852e7319_b.jpg


 I have tried to get others to talk about the issue but none will. The only people that do talk about it are so full of shit their posts should be in brown. So yeah, I'm back to talk about the real issues at the risk of having my account destroyed again. Sorry i couldnt get someone better at writing to talk about it but i will try to make it at least readable.





PART 1
----

Censorship and the denial of free speech.
https://wearechange.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/facebook.jpg



Before i even get started on this issue i want to point out the meaning of censorship.

Censorship is the suppression, obstruction or prohibition of information.
----------

__________________________

I often hear from the other side that:

Yes the blocks are still in the chain

Silent consent? Press freedom watchdogs stay mute on RT’s registration as foreign agent
When governments tighten the thumbscrews on the media, there are a number of international agencies and groups geared up to defend free speech. We've been in touch with many of them in the wake of RT America being forced to register as a 'foreign agent' in the United States. But it's been a strangely muted reaction, as Murad Gazdiev explains.

CrossTalk: Is RT a Foreign Agent?
According to the Department of Justice RT – is an agent of a foreign, even hostile power. All the while the DOJ refuses to explain why this is the case or even cite what laws  may have broken. But something else is in play: Critics warn RT is a test case for a wider campaign of media suppression.

https://Steemit.com is a social network that looks and functions like Reddit and even Facebook, but with one HUGE difference:
# Content creators (news, stories, photographs, tutorials, etc.) are PAID when their work gets upvoted!
People who upvote content are rewarded for helping to curate the best content available on the site. Commenters who add to the discussions are paid too!

How? The Steemit platform is built on top of a new kind of digital currency called Steem. Think Bitcoin, which is another kind of digital currency that has been around for a while. "Cryptocurrency" or "Blockchain-based tech" are more accurate labels. Every day, new units of "Steem" are created by the network and distributed to its users, who can exchange these cryptocurrency units for real money. And it's completely free to get started! Although, you need to have at least a dollar's worth of Steem in o

RT targeted for ‘giving platform to anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist critics’ ‒ Chris Hedges
US Department of Justice has required RT America to register under the Foreign Agent Registration Act (FARA), an anti-propaganda law from the 1930s. “On Contact” host Chris Hedges discusses whether such a requirement will have a chilling effect on the First Amendment’s freedom of the press with RT America’s Ashlee Banks.

RT’s FARA designation is ‘backdoor censorship’ – analyst
Journalism professor Chris Chambers joins “News with Ed” to discuss RT’s historic designation under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA), the first time a news agency has been compelled to register. He explains that the US government is “coming at you like a weasel, through the back door,” and that RT America has the same First Amendment right as NBC, but US elites object to the network’s inconvenient content.
