Our government already has the tools to monitor and restrict our use of the Internet. If the resources that run the Internet needed to be scaled back significantly, they could just shut down types of traffic such as sharing music files, video files, porn sites, etc. And if we’re lucky, spammers.
I think our country will try to keep communication lines open, allow Internet commerce, etc. Censoring is certainly a possibility, but I don’t see the Internet going away.
And regarding Australia, obviously they’re not doing much censoring, as Damnthematrix hasn’t been shut down yet!
