Section 230, the Communications Decency Act of 1996, currently protects our (We the People’s) brand new Digital Frontier before they knew anything about it or technology 30 years ago.
These bureaucrats and elected officials still know very little except it’s uses for power, control of you, your environment and control of your currency. And protecting and not changing Section 230 will keep technology open for our right to digitally assemble, digital freedom of speech and digital freedom from speech, keeping a free and open plain Digital Frontier.
Starting with the pornography industry:
Being targeted by the likes of the PMRC (look up Dee Snider and Tipper Gore), the communication industry in turmoil starting with the break up of “Ma Bell”, the internet came along and smart people created just 26 words in what is called #Section230.
In that same year, the already controlled television broadcast, cable and satellite video consumer industries; heavily regulated by the FCC, were given a television ratings system after being heavily censored since TV & movie media were created many decades before.
This section has protected us all and our 1st Amendment to the Bill of Rights, digitally. All data is protected now because of #CDA230 because it protects whoever you get your entire internet from - the whole device(s) connection - from any liability, illegal search and seizure by whatever government; no matter what you personally use your internet connection for, and/or no matter how many websites or connections you digitally connect to on the internet. Protect it.
