    All government functions must be based on protection of the rights of the individual. Turning over the internet to worldwide statist-collectivists can only mean the destruction of rights in the realm of the internet. The internet should be governed as a system of private property. It was already off to a bad start when property rights in, for example, domain names, which must be repeatedly paid for to be used by permission, were not allowed. The progressive multicultural controls in the hands of foreign powers are much worse, as some of them have already demonstrated by their denials of freedom of speech through control of the internet.

      it's judge ewv speaking, definite and didactic. . while
      I agree, the internet is derived from a darpa experiment
      which just growed like topsy. . we can only hope that
      it would be governed as a private property system,
      since private interests host it. . however, the one-
      world-government folks have latched onto it and are
      giving us a horrible fit. -- j

        There was some government funding for the arpanet version of the connectivity between a few nodes, but the principles and technology were developed by creative, hard-working individuals, not bureaucrats. Someone would have done it with or without government, and most of what we know today of the internet was developed privately and in universities long after the DARPA project. They want government to control all of it.

        Initial government funding is not a reason or justification for government control now. They want it all, and would have us believe that anything that was ever government funded forever precludes private ownership -- just like multiculturalist collectivists deny private ownership because primitive tribes once roamed the earth before principles of individualism were thought of. Their goal is control over everything, including everything they never could have imagined but which was produced by productive individuals.

          Yes! . it's the same mode of thought which is used
          in taxation -- the feds view ALL of our incomes as
          controllable, and choose the portion which will be
          left to us for our discretionary spending. . Their
          Spending Is More Important -- For The Common
          Good. . mustapha mond says so. -- j
