In January 2012, two controversial pieces of legislation were making their way through the US Congress. SOPA, the Stop Online Piracy Act, and PIPA, the Protect Intellectual Property Act, were meant to crack down on the illegal sharing of digital media. The bills were drafted on request of the content industry, Hollywood studios and major record labels.

The online community rose up against the US government to speak out against SOPA, and the anti-online piracy bill was effectively killed off after the largest online protest in US history. But it was only one win in a long battle between US authorities and online users over internet regulation. SOPA and PIPA were just the latest in a long line of anti-piracy legislation US politicians have passed since the 1990s.

“One of the things we are seeing which is a by-product of the digital age is, frankly, it’s much easier to steal and to profit from the hard work of others,” says Michael O’Leary, the executive vice-president for global policy at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA).

The US government says it must be able to fight against piracy and cyber attacks. And that means imposing more restrictions online. But proposed legislation could seriously curb freedom of speech and privacy, threatening the internet as we know it.

Can and should the internet be controlled? Who gets that power? How far will the US government go to gain power over the web? And will this mean the end of a free and global internet?

Fault Lines looks at the fight for control of the web, life in the digital age and the threat to cyber freedom, asking if US authorities are increasingly trying to regulate user freedoms in the name of national and economic security.

From the Inspirational Truth Movement comes a film on the dangers of watching television.  The effects on the human brain of this relatively new technology, the government’s use of television to propagandize the people, and the societal problems caused by television watching are all explored from a unique perspective.  How much is television harming you?

  • “The government’s use of television to propagandize the people”…

    Yeah, because the government owns the media right?

    BS. Jews own and run the TalmudVision.

    I agree though… Throw your TalmudVision out the window!

  • Dreadful picture! Is this subversive electronic interference or what. I’m very interested in the subject but found the video impossible to watch. I don’t think it is my computer and many parts of the video are quite modern so it isn’t aged movies. Please explain!

    It has become overwhelmingly obvious that the media has a twisted sense of psychology. Think…..,why do we see an ever increasing number of brutality, the weird kind. The stuff where the bad guys win in strange ways and show you how to get away with crime. This is certainly not an environment that would promote the kind of society anyone would desire for the future. We are here to grow and positively evolve as a species and we should not subject ourselves to absurdities and waste our precious time. Choose your media according to who you reflect or what makes you feel good.

    Here is one example of mind control by the media. The Center for Public Integrity alleged the Bush administration made a total of 935 false statements between 2001 and 2003 about Iraq.

    Now you know why George Soros has ties to 30 major news organizations. John D. Rockefeller once asked some of his fellows what would it take to control the newspapers in America. He was told all he would need was to control 25 of the major news media outlets. ” We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” William Casey CIA Director, (1981)
