G8 To Regulate Internet?

silvio There is just too much freedom in the world today and someone needs to put a stop it.

 

Currently we have the U.N. in Poland for the Climate Change Conference through which they hope top the Kyoto Agreement and bring America into the fold. We also have a moonbat who wants to create an international court by which to prosecute environmental criminals.

 

The next president of the G8, Italian president Silvio Berlusoni, wants to regulate the internet.

The Register

Speaking to Italian postal workers, Reuters reports Berlusconi said: “The G8 has as its task the regulation of financial markets… I think the next G8 can bring to the table a proposal for a regulation of the internet.”

Of course there need to be rules for the internet, but any time the word regulation is used, I’m suspect of it’s meaning.

I have little doubt that regulation would mean freedom of speech would take a hit. The Fairness Doctrine of the internet.

 

The same article continues

The left-wing newspaper L’Unita wrote: “You can not say that it is not a disturbing proclamation, given that the only countries in the world where there are filters or restrictions against internet are countries ruled by dictatorial regimes: those between China, Iran, Cuba, Saudi Arabia.”
