[WashingtonTimes] U.S. Cyber chief opposes U.N. control Of Internet - Page 4

post #31 of 34
I would have a ton more respect for the motives behind this if China and Russia weren't the two backing this. Both countries have extreme censure of the press and Russia is dangerously close to becoming a dictatorship.

I just think a UN approach might not be a bad thing. Honestly no real way to know. I just forsee that more individual governments will start stepping in a taking control of the Internet in their countries...if that happens I am sure more people will want a UN approach were at least there are more parties involved.

I am not too worried about the US...the large corporations would not stand for it, but I am sure other countries might not have a choice.

At least ISPs have rules and regulations to follow, what would happen if the ISP's started writing their own laws....

Yea, and at our bank I have heard horror stories of hackers from China and Russia being either funded or aided in some way by their government. I don't know how much of it is true, but the person claims to have worked for the FBI before working at the bank as an information security manager.

He most likely meant if the US government took 100% control and regulated the internet for the united states.

Then yeah, i'd see rioting as highly justified, it will be occupy wallstreet x10.
Then again, i dont think critical thinking is your strong point, i advise you to take comfort in your bible, this is a serious discussion .
