To be honest I'm not really aware of it yet, the only thing that I know is that memes are going to be banned (?)

Well, something like that. Basically they will regulate the internet in a way or another. It was approved a few days ago and it consists of analyzing the traffic (with the use of the ISPs) and check if is anything that you post that have copyright restrictions. Basically giving a lot more power to the ISPs and giving them the opportunity to drop your content, spy on you, etc

Well only some packets were laced, so a lot of people should be fine...
Just look if you downloaded those packets and that's it.
They are from the aur so who knows what you can find there...

lol, it sounds like another unrealistic implementation of a law that is hard to enforce.
it's just another reason not to send things over the internet as plaintext, but encrypt the traffic. Analyzing encrypted traffic isn't really effective if you can't read it.

The battle of control over the internet isn't a new thing, and up till now, the pro control camp isn't really succeeding the way they want it to.

And regarding the new EU laws that try to force their law globally, like the GDPR is something in my eyes that leads to failure to implement and uphold.
Someone in africa won't care about an EU law as it's not applicable.....

I think we should do the exact opposite. Bring it in to the open. With technology like Bitcoin Cash censorship is entirely impossible. If you want to censor one item on the blockchain, you will have to take down the entire network, which would involve taking down the internet, or making a per-country "whitelist" of servers and website you're allowed to connect to. Moving the internet onto blockchain is the only and best option for a free internet going forward. Instead of HTTP, we will have BCH. We're already seeing a rise of uncontrollable uncensorable networks on top of BCH, such as https://memo.cash, https://bookchain.cash, https://blockpress.com, https://yours.org, https://mttr.app, http://joystream.co, https://lighthouse.cash and literally hundreds of other projects and thousands more to come.

With these projects, malicious, facist and germany-controlled organizations like the EU have no power to remove anything, and central points of failure like servers and domain names are taken out of the equation. This would be the most transparent and secure internet replacement that has ever existed, and ever will. No one can hack your account, no one can ban you and manipulation like vote-botting and the likes becomes entirely impossible.
