The Western world, from Australia to the United States, UK and parts of Europe, are moving in a unified front toward dictatorial Internet censorship. Australia has led the way, despite outcry from its populace, by "filtering" out certain banned content. In the United States, Sen. Jay Rockefeller, in continuing his family's tradition of oppressing free humanity, has pushed forward Cybersecurity legislation that has already passed the House. He has done so in the name of warding off ghastly cyber "attackers" conceivably fronting for al Qaeda while ushering in a means to restrict free speech and expression online for the general population.

Can anybody explain me what does it take for one nation to control the internet.
And what can we do to donate for the cause to create some thing that every one has access to it for free speech.

There is no way for one country to "control" or "own" the internet. They can only control the internet in their own country. True, the US currently controls the main DNS servers, but each country is more than capable of running their own.
