The U.N. Wants To Regulate The Internet

“The United Nations is considering whether to set up an inter-governmental working group to harmonise global efforts by policy makers to regulate the internet.”  What could possibly go wrong?

Well, let’s see.  The U.N.’s “human rights” committees are invariably dominated by totalitarian regimes.  Is there any doubt that the same thing would happen if we were to surrender our sovereignty with respect to the Internet to the same bunch of corrupt crackpots?  Pretty soon, every Google search would return nothing but anti-Israel diatribes.

Although the effort is being pitched as a response to the reprehensible WikiLeaks fiasco, it is nothing more than an attempt to suppress and control speech.  Never let a crisis go to waste and all that.  It must be resisted by freedom-loving people.
