Head in the Cloud

June 16, 2011

Cloud Computing

The Cloud is basically a You Tube for everything, and the problem with this
is that You Tube routinely blocks, censors and deletes content when ordered to
by governments. As we reported back in May, You Tube is now following orders from governments to
remove videos that show protests, demonstrations and other sensitive information
the state doesn’t want others to see.

Indeed, Amazon’s Cloud network notoriously
deleted the entire Wikileaks website from its servers following a phone call
made by Senator Joe Lieberman’s Senate Homeland Security Committee demanding the
website be axed.

Lieberman has been at the forefront of a push to purge the Internet of all
dissent by empowering Obama with a figurative Internet kill switch that he would
use to shut down parts of the Internet or terminate websites under the guise of
national security. Lieberman spilled the beans on the true reason for the move
during a CNN interview when he stated “Right now China, the government, can
disconnect parts of its Internet in case of war and we need to have that here

The cloud is therefore the perfect compliment to cybersecurity. The goal is
to force everyone to use one of the cloud networks run by a major corporation,
first by taxing, regulating, and making the normal Internet prohibitively
expensive, and eventually by shutting it down all together. Once the vast
majority of data is confined to the cloud network, harsher copyright, free
speech and defamation laws will slowly be tightened, which will force the
alternative media out of business.
