🇬🇧 #Cybersecurity: EU to ban anonymous websites and “whois privacy” services. The LIBE Committee supports indiscriminatory identification of domain holders incl. your phone number in Whois: https://www.patrick-breyer.de/en/cybersecurity-eu-to-ban-anonymous-websites/
Usually if you want to raise attention to a particular legal regulation you’d start with quoting it.
However in the Breyer’s article the alleged ban is only vaguely summarized in literally a few words, and then the rest is a massive quote of what MEP Patrick Breyer thinks about it.
I agree bad ideas need to be pushed back, but I remain unconvinced that there actually is any bad ideas in that draft. Of course I checked the linked NIS2 page… and I wasn’t able to find anything resembling Breyer’s claim, which is not surprising as it contains hundreds of documents.
The modern approach to "activism" is to lie loudly, let that lie become the default truth, then handwave the moderate voices who try to point out that the lie is, in fact, such.
C.f. China's "social credit score" for a perfect case of this in operation.
Of course the process is self-defeating. I now automatically assume any loud clarion call is a lie.
