Apparently, last Friday, the House and the Senate passed a resolution calling on Obama not to allow for the ceding of Internet control to the UN.
Well, finally, our legislative branch gets something right.
But this all seems a tad bit fishy to me.
After all, we've suffered through all kinds of bills designed to grasp control of one of the last bastions of freedom on earth: Remember SOPA, CISPA,
ACTA, and MEGAUPLOAD?
The powers that be have a sneaky way of introducing new ideas to us slowly, until they settle in and fester for years while we become accustomed to
them. Look at our airports if you need a good example. We're already used to government control of our bodies in the name of terrorism.
On the UN Ploy to cede control of the Net and the response of the US:
Happily, as we have noted, the Executive and Legislative branches are in agreement, which means that the United States has zero interest in
allowing for such an occurrence.
I'm not breaking out the champagne just yet. Keeping the Internet free will always be an ongoing battle.
