That's all we need.

I can see how they see this as a great opportunity.

The Internet cannot be regulated.

Too many who are too skilled hate government (in general) and control far too much.

This would kick off a cyberwar to make anything US/China/Iran/etc that has happened already look like nothing.

The reason that the United States, and not China or Iran, was able to invent the internet is because we, unlike they, have a culture that promotes openness, competitiveness and success based on merit.



They can go fuck themselves.

Is this the same 'we need to restrict what people can say' shit they've been vomiting about for several years now?

Why is it when I read:

"...representatives from Brazil called for an international body made up of Government representatives that would attempt to create global standards for policing the internet - specifically in reaction to challenges such as WikiLeaks."

I heard it in JarJar Bink's voice when he addressed the Senate?

Irrespective of the pros and cons of the proposed US net neutrality law, fuck the UN and what those corrupt shits want.

Well, we used to.  The competitiveness is under attack, as it is just not "fair" that some people have more than others.  Democrats want equal results, not equal opportunity.  Success based on merit, ha.  Every kid gets a trophy, etc.  Welfare state is alive and well.  You can work for yours, or just sit on your ass and the .gov will give you yours.

I know, a rant, and not much to do with the internet.  The UN and liberals want to regulate it to control the message, and tax it to create a revenue stream to fund liberal feel-good stuff.  I hope they fail miserably.

Most americans don`t realize that the internet is the weapon our enemies fear the most. We can reach in most homes on the planet without the ability of most governments to interfere with it, and show their citizens what ever they want to see. I think the chinese would rather see more US nuclear weapons than an internet that they have no control over.

  The Internet has been allowed to grow and get high tech enough that it can not be stopped or be controlled without consequences.

   I am not a 4chan hagboy or whatever they call themselves.

   But for the last decade, the Internet and computers themselves have evolved frighteningly quickly.

This.  The internet can't be controlled.  Look at Wikileaks.  Hell, look at GD on a good day.  Utter uncontrolled chaos.

We better start paying attention.  Sooner or later, there will be a power shift where we the U.S. is nothing more than a nation-state governed right along besides China and Russia.  The infrastructure is in place already.
