This house believes that the internet is too powerful and endagers our privacy.It has the ability to find out loads of personal information online and filter it thorough to other people or sites which expose our personal life. The internet can also expose many secrets , like government secrets through WikiLeaks.

what you seek is indeed what you will get on the internet. as for your privacy their are many ways to protect your self from hackers and and unwanted information on the web. if you have kids and want to protect them from the web their are many ways to do this. dont just say the internet is dangerious when you dont know the actuall danger it brings, however i blieve the internet has more benefits then the amount of danger people claim.

Children are usually innocent and find it hard to monitor privacy settings. As a result, htey are directly targeted.How can it be just that there are sites like Wikileaks as well?Hackers have intricate ways of finding out information through the internet which can be very damaging. What can you say to prove me that the internet is not too powerful?Your answer only conver half of the question. :)

it is not the childrent that are incharge of their protections, if their parents failed to do this then, its the parents fault, the only danger to a child on the web, is commuincating with other party they do not know, kids dont have that much to do online other then talking to friends and playing games, its the adult that need to take serious caution, for they use the internet for bussiness and banking and so many other things, you cant tell me that with all the news about hacker, a mature adult is not going to take any of that into account while on the internet?

you keep using the word "POWERFUL" powerful in which ways? when it comes to global communication the internet is indeed powerful,

the internet if you think its too powerful, it cannot control the human mind, atleast not yet, and the same ways it can be use for evil deed it can also be use for good. their are bad ways to use the internet, but their are also many good ways to use it, and protect yourself, and not just anyone can use the internet to hack, becasue not everyone out their know how to do that, very few internet genius out their, the number is also increaseing i know that for sure, but its also increasing on the justice side as well. you have nothing to fear on the internet, as long as your intentions are good, and do something about your self-protection, dont trust anyting you see, or do not know. you know it is because of the internet good uses that you and i are able to convers about this matter.
