Australian Government, leading the blind

Why the odd background today? The Australian Government are not acting in it's citizens best interest. They're moving to mandatory filter what citizens are allowed to see, promoting it under the guise of protecting children. It's *exactly* like what repressed countries do - and is irresponsible on a global scale. They answer 'protecting children' not with trying to actually tackle abuse as part of an international community, but with covering the eyes of their citizens - which can't be good for our future.
