The Internet As You Know It Is Slated for Death by 2012
by Barbara L. Minton
(NaturalNews) It's probably safe to say that many of you reading this article right now came upon the NaturalNews.com website while you were roaming around on the internet looking for empowering information to help get healthy or to protect the good health you have. Can you imagine what it would mean to you to lose your freedom to search for free, unlimited and uncensored information on the internet? You may soon find out as the communications giants put into place their new plans to alter and control internet content, access and cost.
Since the internet began to gain popularity in the early 1990's, we as a society have had access to information at a speed and depth never dreamed of by our recent ancestors. About 1 billion people use the internet, and each of them is able to communicate with the rest of them anytime and anywhere on the planet. The internet was predicted to bring out the worst in people, but the truth is that it has brought out the best in us. Although our identities can be masked, as a people we have generally told the truth and acted fairly on the internet. We have only begun to realize to what level our awareness can be heightened by using the internet.
At a time when our freedoms are being hacked from underneath us, the internet is our bedrock of resistance. It is the only medium not owned, controlled and censored by big money and big power. It is only on the internet that we hear the truth about those who seek to dominate us and use us as pawns to further their own agendas.
Unfortunately, when there are profits to be had the needs of society don't matter. The truth of this statement is underscored by the activities of phone and cable lobbyists who are in a political campaign to further weaken the nation's communication laws. Their goal is to be allowed to operate the internet and other communication services as private networks free of government oversight.
At a time when telecommunications media are converging and companies are becoming vertically integrated, the communication giants and those who control them see bundled services as their way to impose near monopoly control over the information that flows into our homes via television, computer, phone. The magnitude of this change will end the internet as we know it.
According to information readily accessible on the internet, the effort is underway to charge per site fees on most internet sites. The plan will convert the internet into a cable-like system in which customers will sign up and pay for access to specific web sites and then pay al a carte to visit any sites beyond the package they have bought. It's modeled on the manner in which cable TV subscribers buy prepackaged service, leaving them open to purchase extra services on a per view basis. Many sites not popular enough to be bundled would disappear. Costs for the average internet user would soar.
FCC regulations have already allowed the phone and cable giants to gain greater control over broadband and eliminate longstanding regularoty safeguards. Companies providing internet access are not required to operate in a nondiscriminatory manner. It has been governmental regulation of phone lines that has helped make the internet the open, accessible and vibrant medium it is today. But now the effort is underway to privatize these networks and the government is slowly allowing this to happen.
Aside from filling corporate coffers, this plan to restrict internet availability will serve the power elite quite well if they are able to gain control of the country's digital destiny. The internet has been the one roadblock to the implementation of the elite's agenda set for the beginning of the 21st century, the next phase of the move toward One World Government, also known as The New World Order. Pockets of resistance have halted steps essential to the progress of this agenda, such as the current efforts underway by the people of Texas to stop construction of the Trans Texas Corridor. Internet restriction would go a long way in squelching this resistance.
Are the corporations right in their assessment of us? Will we be steamrolled once again or will we be willing to take a stand here at the threatened loss of our most powerful tool? Maybe we will realize that if we lose the internet, we will have lost everything.
You can learn more about the move to One World Government because thankfully today you still have free access to all the information on the internet. The film Endgame is a good place to start your education. You can watch it for free at
The creator of the film, Alex Jones, also is the creator of a very informative website
When you first came to NaturalNews.com you may have thought the information here was radical. It may have taken you a few visits before you began to realize that at Natural News, you are being told the truth. You will probably have the same reaction to the Alex Jones sites, where the truth you are being told is so far away from what the mainstream media tells you that it is very unsettling at first.
After you have seen Endgame, you will probably want to research the Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg, and the Tri-Lateral Commission. And you can use your freedom to roam on from there. The more you find out, the more you will see how all the pieces fit together, and how the information you are getting from Natural News fits into the whole picture.
What you will find may shock you, cause stress and give you some sleepless nights. It is absolutely stunning in its magnitude. And yet this information is also very liberating and empowering. Many of the questions you have lurking in the back of your mind will be answered. Sir Francis Bacon had it right when he told us that "Knowledge is Power".
