The Obama regime in America has decided to let a “global governance” regime take over America’s internet governance.
It’s not entirely clear what this means. Some say it merely means little basic things, but we know how these things turn out, going far beyond what the proponents of the change are willing to admit, and it’s often undesirable.
U.S. officials announced plans Friday to relinquish federal government control over the administration of the Internet, a move that pleased international critics but alarmed some business leaders and others who rely on the smooth functioning of the Web.
Pressure to let go of the final vestiges of U.S. authority over the system of Web addresses and domain names that organize the Internet has been building for more than a decade and was supercharged by the backlash last year to revelations about National Security Agency surveillance.
Senate Commerce Committee Chairman John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.) called the move “consistent with other efforts the U.S. and our allies are making to promote a free and open Internet, and to preserve and advance the current multi-stakeholder model of global Internet governance.”
But former House speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) tweeted: “What is the global internet community that Obama wants to turn the internet over to? This risks foreign dictatorships defining the internet.”
The practical consequences of the decision were harder to immediately discern, especially with the details of the transition not yet clear.
Personally, I fail to see why there must be a global governing body, rather than cooperation globally between sovereign national internet governing authorities.
The danger lies within the kind of global-governing regime there would be, and what kind of people, what kind of puppetmasters, minions, organizational culture and controls there would be. Would it be one in which they merely keep things working properly, smoothly and in a globally-coordinated, cooperative manner, or is this a trojan horse to some form of communications tyranny vis a vis the internet? All kinds of serious, scary questions arise. Can you imagine the potential consequences of global governance over the internet?
Global government, also known, actually, as the “New World Order”, infamously alluded to by former US President George HW Bush, is planned to be created in a creeping, insidious, almost imperceptible way, over time, with one thing after another being turned over to a global governance entity. The people will not notce it until it’s too late, unfortunately. And they’ll be conditioned by mass propaganda media mechanisms to dismiss the whole idea as a silly, loony “conspiracy theory” even though they can see for themselves the very reality unfolding and progressing before their eyes, affecting their daily lives, in fact.
