Yes I think many if not all people here agree with you because we all
understand the matter.

However my impression is that the politician just want to censor "the
web" even at the cost of violating everybody's security and privacy
within Australia, all they see is a check box next to http and https,
I bet ya even Mr. Conroy wouldn't even know what's going on when his
https to this favourite bank gets intercepted.

A 6 minute interview regarding to https with Mark from Internode:

It seems real enough to me and the threat comes from lack of awareness
of the general public. My thought is that people needs to be informed.
