The U.N. Threat to Internet Freedom

On Feb. 27, a diplomatic process will begin in Geneva that could result in a new treaty giving the United Nations unprecedented powers over the Internet. Dozens of countries, including Russia and China, are pushing hard to reach this goal by year's end. As Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said last June, his goal and that of his allies is to establish "international control over the Internet" through the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), a treaty-based organization under U.N. auspices.

If successful, these new regulatory proposals would upend the Internet's flourishing regime, which has been in place since 1988. That year, delegates from 114 countries gathered in Australia to agree to a treaty that set the stage for dramatic liberalization of international telecommunications. This insulated the Internet from economic and technical regulation and quickly became the greatest deregulatory success story of all time.

Are there any wonders why I generally dislike most people?

deregulate to shift the blame away from the government, re-regualte when they want it back.
See fashion is cyclic.

I wonder how long until they remember why they deregulated it in the first place...

That article read 'dozens of governments, including ......' instead of dozens of countries.

if it scotches the meddling intent of the cartel and the members of congress that they own, it has to be a good thing
What you think is important is rarely urgent
But what you think is Urgent is rarely important

Just remember that...
