01) Online Harms White Paper

“Summary

The Online Harms White Paper sets out the government’s plans for a world-leading package of measures to keep UK users safe online.

This consultation closes at
11:59pm on 1 July 2019

Consultation description

The Online Harms White Paper sets out the government’s plans for a world-leading package of online safety measures that also supports innovation and a thriving digital economy. This package comprises legislative and non-legislative measures and will make companies more responsible for their users’ safety online, especially children and other vulnerable groups.

The White Paper proposes establishing in law a new duty of care towards users, which will be overseen by an independent regulator. Companies will be held to account for tackling a comprehensive set of online harms, ranging from illegal activity and content to behaviours which are harmful but not necessarily illegal.

This consultation aims to gather views on various aspects of the government’s plans for regulation and tackling online harms, including:

the online services in scope of the regulatory framework;
options for appointing an independent regulatory body to implement, oversee and enforce the new regulatory framework;
the enforcement powers of an independent regulatory body;
potential redress mechanisms for online users; and
measures to ensure regulation is targeted and proportionate for industry.

This is an open public consultation. We particularly encourage responses from organisations, companies and others with relevant views, insights or evidence.

This consultation closes at 23:59, 1 July 2019.

An easy read version of the Executive Summary will be available shortly.

Pat Benatar – Behind the Music…

01) Pat Benatar – Behind the Music


I think the one sole thing about Pat which I had a harder time with…was the “Hell is for Children” thing…

I was still pretty young when it came out..It sounded fine…It just always went over like a thud, with me…It’s a dark, very emotionally suggestive song, incorporating your typical themes on child sexual abuse.

Why it stood out, is because nobody was doing this type of thing…introducing that sort of issue, with that sort of depiction and message…

As I got a bit older…I realized more deeply what the song was actually about…and for most of my life, “Hell is for Children” has stood out in my mind…as a pioneering effort to construct this really dark mental picture…of “what it means for children to be touched by sex”…

…I dislike this song, because of what it lyrically pushes…in a black and white sort of way.

It always seemed like it was setting there, “right at the beginning”, fanning the flames of hysteria.

At the same time…I do realize, that “Hell is for Children” does represent the lived experience of many children in this world.

I just think the song falls short, morally…in that it’s so narrow in view…

…There is no distinction…It’s all just, “You shouldn’t have to pay for your love, with your bones and your flesh”…as if there were no other option, than brutality and injury.

Given everything that falls under the umbrella of “child sexual abuse”…I find this to be a really wrong, honestly reprehensible, framing of the issue.

Fall of the Roman Empire – When Will It Happen to the U.S.?…

01) Fall of the Roman Empire – When Will It Happen to the U.S.?


“Could the fall of the Roman empire have been caused partly by the privatization of their military?

Mortal Republican: How Rome Fell to Tyranny details how privatization of the military was precursor to the the eventual fall of the entire empire.

As companies like Black Water begin the same task with privatizing combat fighting, security, and others are cutting into the VA, could we be seeing the same phenomenon that caused the Roman empire to fall happening to the United States Empire?”
