No one organization can completely shut the internet down, it's like a river and while you can dam it, all of that water will flow somewhere else.
They CAN however restrict it.
The truth is that the balance of internet power is in the hands of more then one goverment or people.
If the U.S.A restricted or even completely blocked access to the net then they would also be blocking their own access. And if the only info on the
net was theirs (ie: banking and stocks info) then that would only make it so much easier for the disaffected to strike back.
The internet has become like a highway network, if you close it it stops EVERYONE.
For the PTB to close the internet would be a last ditch effort, because not only does it cripple them somewhat it will also be the clarion call to the
'99%' that kid gloves are off.
We (the people) start to get violent and they send in the cops, we outnumber the cops so they send in the military. The military divides over ethics
and morals and suddenly it is a civil war.
Shutting down the internet is like screaming out 'FIRE', it will cause more trouble and chaos then it could ever possibly fix by being switched
Barring access to internet resources may even incite the anger of foreign nations, not to mention anger the billions of people who rely on it to make
If the PTB barr access to the net then it will be dark days ahead for all and sundry.
