We may someday lose this free, relatively unmoderated web access we’re used to. Last month in Geneva, Switzerland, an organization within the United Nations made this recommendation:
We ask the Secretary General of the United Nations to set up a working group in Internet governance…to investigate and make proposals for action, as appropriate, on the governance of Internet by 2005. (Emphasis mine.)
In other words, the globalists want to bring web access to heel by wrapping it in a regulatory straitjacket that benefits only those in charge.
The United Nations charter states that the rights to “freedom of opinion and expression”, and the rights to “seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers” (Article 19), “may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.” (Third clause, Article 29)
The web is my primary source of news because it isn’t filtered–or as filtered, anyway. We do not want an unelected, global bureaucracy deciding what we can access, and especially what constitutes an idea that is contrary to the purposes of the UN.
