There appears to be a coordinated attack on human rights in Commonwealth nations lately. Canada, New Zealand and now Australia.
Here we see Australia's Prime Minister Morrison exert extreme overreach under what appears to be on the surface a justified clamping down on the online exploitation of children. RP
"Morrison vows to crack down on social media trolling and online child abuse material"
"Prison for online trolls in Australia"
"Online trolls could soon face up to five years in prison, if the Prime Minister of Australia gets his way.
It’s already illegal to “menace, harass or cause offence” online in Australia. That’s right. It’s illegal to offend someone in Australia.
And that cybercrime carries up to three years in prison if “reasonable persons” would consider the online behavior offensive or menacing.
But the Prime Minister wants a stiffer penalty of up to five years for offending someone else’s delicate feelings.
As usual, the government keeps their laws nice and obscure so that they can make the case that practically anyone has broken them."
