Strangling Debate

Australians' freedom of the internet took a further hit this week with the passing of laws forbidding the discussion of suicide techniques on-line.

What a News Limited item does not highlight is that earlier in the week it was noted that even viewing sites which detail methods of doing away with oneself will be illegal.

It's not the euthanasia issue that one, ahem, takes issue with. It's the slow strangulation of free speech on the web.
