The Cybersecurity Act of 2009 could grant the President the power to shut down Internet networks. Have a quote from the article:
According to the bill’s language, the president would have broad authority to designate various private networks as a “critical infrastructure system or network” and, with no other review, “may declare a cyber-security emergency and order the limitation or shutdown of Internet traffic to and from” the designated the private-sector system or network.
That’s it folks! The last medium granting almost absolute freedom of expression- compromised! Sorry, this has just made me temporarily incoherent. I can barely keep my spelling and grammar in check. I’m going to go find something else to write about before I smash my keyboard.
