Hawaii’s legislature is weighing an unprecedented proposal to curb the privacy of Aloha State residents: requiring Internet providers to keep track of every Web site their customers visit.

The measure, H.B. 2288, says “Internet destination history information” and “subscriber’s information” such as name and address must be saved for two years.

  1. When it comes to human beings, unrestrained freedom, being absolutely free morally and ethically, leads to chaos, which is what those pushing global democracy have fomented, especially in the Middle Eastern nations. In response to this human designed governments have always sought out ways of creating order out of this chaos. Gee, where have I heard this before? The World Wide Web, and the associated electronic technologies, electronic systems, and electronic devices being created for IT, are the perfect surveillance tools for monitoring the masses “anytime, anywhere”. So, the WWW will be used to manipulate and control the masses, and in fact IT already does so to a great degree, so that they increasingly support ITS rise, which is ongoing. There can be no real freedom in such a system, and there will not be, because each individuals thoughts and actions will be directed toward increasingly supporting IT, which is ongoing. Those not in support of IT will be deemed threats to those who do support IT. Simple, really. What course of action will be logical in response to those who will not “go the last mile” by becoming a fully integrated part of the “hive mind” under the complete control of the “Global Brain”? Villainization? Criminalization? Incarceration? Termination? You get the picture yet?
