Stop the U.N. From Taking Over the Internet
November 29, 2012 in World News
From December 3 to the 14th, the International Telecommunications Union will be meeting in Dubai, United Arab Emirates to discuss how to control and tax the internet. The ITU is a functioning arm of the United Nations and many member countries are lobbying for the international body to clamp down on internet freedom.
According to media executive L. Gordon Crovitz, “The self-regulating Internet means no one has to ask for permission to launch a website, and no government can tell network operators how to do their jobs.” Under the U.N. tutelage, this would all change. Government, not the people, would be in charge.
The decentralized nature of the internet is what makes it most appealing to liberty lovers. Maintaining this structure is necessary for a free society.
Keep the internet free. Tell your representatives to stop the International Telecommunications Union from regulating cyberspace.
