On the surface, it's all about protecting Russian kids from internet pedophiles. In reality, the Kremlin's new "Single Register" of banned websites, which goes into effect Nov. 1, will wind up blocking all kinds of online political speech.
What we are seeing in the USA, Russia and other advanced countries is a Global POWER GRAB of Freedom from Citizens. We are under surveillance constantly under the pretext of 'protecting the citizenry'. In Fact, 99.9% of all the recordings of cell phone, cameras, internet activity etc. is totally LEGAL but may be used in the future for further control and intimidation by the central governments of the Planet. I know this sound way far out and just another conspiracy theory, but it IS happening NOW. Don't believe me? Read Brad Thor's book 'Black List' then visit my site where I document the reverences he makes about the illegal survelience going on in the USA, NOW: http://impissedoff.org/documents/black_list.html
