China and Iran are the last two countries that should be opening their mouths about the net. They fear the internet because of the free exchange of
ideas is so hard to monitor and their populations are exposed to ideas that threaten their backwards and oppresive dogmas.
I honestly believe no one should control the internet. I honestly believe that the internet is the key to inciting peaceful revolution in many nations
with oppresive governments. People can learn many things while never leaving their homes, and can voice dissent annonomously.
In the US, I believe the interney has been key in the decline of the Bush Admins popularity. Since they cannot really monitir or supress information
on the net fast enough, they no longer have a total control over the truth, and thus, people are able to visit other countries websites and news
agencies, and see everything that the TV media has not reported.
The internet is a beautiful thing, and honestly, I highly doubt anyone will ever be able to pull the plug on it. Its gone too far and has affected too
many people. Its a realm of pure thought. A wonderful forum for the world, where no matter your nationality or social standing, everyone on here can
have an equal voice.
