No, it will be the content cartel's guidelines and their bought legislation, not Society's;
I wonder how many people opposed to greater ISP control of illegal activities are the same people who support civil lawsuits against telcos (as a cheap way to do what they can't do through criminal proceedings). If it's a large overlap, I wonder why these same people aren't willing to let this work itself out in civil court, the subject of basically a popularity contest (not whether it's legal or constitutional).

Yes you have.

This kind of legislation needs to be put of the discussion table, much less turned down.

What kind of stupid fucking remark is that to make? You and Amigo Boy apparently can't follow the topic!

The TOPIC:

"The International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI) is pressuring European lawmakers to create the piracy equivalent of the great Chinese firewall. In a letter (pdf) to lawmakers, the group urges them to force ISPs to employ content filters, block certain protocols, and eliminate access to certain websites in "rogue jurisdictions" like the Pirate Bay. According to the group, none of these options are "overly burdensome or expensive, or causes problems for regular services to the ISP's customers...

...The RIAA, MPAA and companies such as NBC are engaged in a similar quest here in the States, and have been also urging lawmakers to force ISPs (and in some case residential hardware vendors) to implement piracy filters...

...The EFF, as you might imagine, is calling that poppycock..."

The topic is NOT civil lawsuits against Telcos for illegally handing over customer call records to the NSA, and for providing illegal real-time access to all traffic across their voice/data networks to the NSA without a warrant having been obtained, despite Amigo Boy's confused bleatings, and now your own in support of his dragging the thread "off-topic".
