UN wants control of web ‘kill switch’

‘….A draft of the proposal, formulated in secret and only recently posted on the ITU website for public perusal, reveal that if accepted, the changes would allow government restriction or blocking of information disseminated via the internet and create a global regime of monitoring internet communications – including the demand that those who send and receive information identify themselves.
And here’s the money quote, from Dr Paul Twomey,  former CEO of the International Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers:
….“The danger is that there is now a growing likelihood of the interests of more traditional forces for Internet control overlapping with, and even seeking further to align with, national security and law enforcement agenda.”..’

Aldous Huxley would have been impressed.

  2. That is very scary. America says Iran is the biggest threat to world stability; they’ve got to be kidding; the UN is the most dangerous. The UN is the starting point for a one-world government.

    There still remains a small sign on a busy road in my neighborhood “Get out of the UN” by the John Birch Society. Even very young, I seem to have always agreed with that idea.

    Gov’t unelected/elected censors: eat a big one.
