Whenever there is the possibility to raise money and control [something or other people]; the (so-called) “do-gooders” rise to the occasion. In the name of “security” and “protection” those self appointed (or otherwise appointed) elites and holier-than-thous will attempt to exert their massive and over-extending outreach.
And, whenever there is the possibility to raise money by taxing the already overburdened taxpayer and the poor, these socialites will do so. They have myopic minds and are fixated upon their own Utopian ideals and goals. What a kick in the face to the umpteen millions of Internet users whose only public voice they have as a restricted minority to be flooded with possible future UN Internet tax, control and censure!
Remember the old adage?
“The power to tax; is the power to control!”
>>>>>>>> Next week the United Nations’ International Telecommunications Union will meet in Dubai to figure out how to control the Internet……….
……”Next week the ITU holds a negotiating conference in Dubai, and past months have brought many leaks of proposals for a new treaty…….”Having the Internet rewired by bureaucrats would be like handing a Stradivarius to a gorilla. The Internet is made up of 40,000 networks that interconnect among 425,000 global routes, cheaply and efficiently delivering messages and other digital content among more than two billion people around the world, with some 500,000 new users a day….
…….”Proposals for the new ITU treaty run to more than 200 pages. One idea is to apply the ITU’s long-distance telephone rules to the Internet by creating a ‘sender-party-pays’ rule. International phone calls include a fee from the originating country to the local phone company at the receiving end. Under a sender-pays approach, U.S.-based websites would pay a local network for each visitor from overseas, effectively taxing firms such as Google and Facebook. The idea is technically impractical because unlike phone networks, the Internet doesn’t recognize national borders. But authoritarians are pushing the tax, hoping their citizens will be cut off from U.S. websites that decide foreign visitors are too expensive to serve.” ……. <<<<<<<<<< - - weeklystandard.com/
