    You mean what the government allows? Yes, I fear that too.

    Again, it is not the government that is pushing this, but private business. Now saying that, the government is just in the pockets of said industry, but ultimately it is the private owned big telecommunications companies that are pushing for this to keep their geographical monopolies in place. So blaming government more than private business is dishonest to say the least.

    You don't seem to understand at all what's happening here. The government isn't what would be taking control of things, it would be allowing private telcoms to control things instead of keeping all traffic "neutral."

    Of course it has. The internet is the thron in most countries side because they have no control over it. Making this a "UN" issue is lame btw, the UN is just the conduit being used by the countries behind the idea, because most countries are members of the UN. It could just as well have been in the WTO or other organisation. And dont think for a second this is a "left wing" issue.. this tighter control is being spearheaded by very conservative people and countries with various reasons.. some political, some economical, some security related or all of the 3. I would wager the US companies would push for an Internet police to stop all the piracy... and so on.

    But, it's the government that makes the laws. You know, the guys that are supposed to, "protect and defend", the Constitution?

    You can cry about the, "evil corporations", all you want, but the biggest beneficiary of this is a government that wants to suppress free speech and dissent. Al the more reason why we need to get the Libbos out, forever.
