Fadi Chehade is a citizen of Egypt, Lebanon, and the United States.
hmm I wonder to which Nation his allegiance is strongest..if he has any allegiance at all.
I like what free thinking people are doing, such as those who are open source advocates, they will find a way around any gov’t control of the internet eventually.
Learn to use TOR with IPv6... no stopping us.
Not strictly true. They maintain and issue IP addresses and domain names. 'Infrastructure' covers a lot of area. ICANN has nothing to do with hardware infrastructure.
Free speech DOES exist under the auspices of the US Constitution and inside the USA. Unfortunately, we don’t have the legal ability to enforce the Bill of Rights in other countries.
And if the US finds that free speech is being suppressed by way of the domain naming system, it’s easy enough to create an alternate set of DNS servers, which would be accessible in the USA and thereby preserve the free speech of the USA.
As far as the rest of the world ... well ... we really don’t control the rest of the world.
Giving it away as if it was theirs to give.
How nice. :)
Shouldn't the list of things that supposedly won't be jeopardized extend beyond "security and stability"? Those are mostly technical considerations, and do not include such things as freedom from censorship and government control.
And, yeah, it would be "historic", sort of like Obama's support of the Muslim Brotherhood was "historic".
Consider the UN’s interpretation of blasphemy (against Islam only) being applied to the internet.
Consider to UK’s interpretation of liable being applied to the internet. “True is no defense.” Just because something is true doesn’t mean it isn’t defamation.
Consider that above on steroids.
And, most of the countries of the world will use the technology to identify political dissidents...based of what a citizen might simply view, let alone create on the internet.
40% of the UN member states are tin-pot dictators, they shouldn’t be allowed to manage a hotdog cart let alone the internet.
Banks have been going paperless, and the talk of chips for prevention of ID theft puts all Christians at risk, as well as Conservatives; all Americans somewhat. The Bible says the Antichrist will give the mark of the beast and only those who have that mark will be able to buy or sell...think about how that is possible if the UN (more Islam countries than you think now), and whose allegiance would you have to pledge to in order to use the internet eventually...maybe not in 2 or 4 years but down the road.
Think about the population issue, Muslims have more children than any other group...France, and other countries have that issue now...Islam will take over slowly if only by population explosion.
STUPID for USA to give up control of the Internet, we have become self destructive with Zero and the IGNORATS help.
We already lost free speech. It’s called “political correctness.”
Just another example of why Obama needs to be removed from office ASAP. It goes without question now that the only agenda of this guy is to destroy the US, so WTF are Republicans going to do about it? Are they going to continue to hide under their desks while this foreign enemy agent moves on to the next thing and destroys it? Is destroying healthcare not enough which directly threatens the lives of the citizens of this country? How much more evidence do they need? Biden is stupid, but stupid beats being an enemy foreign agent. We got 3 more years of this putz with a questionable background, and God knows what he is going to do by the end of his term. For all we know he could be planning a major terror attack, how do we know? This is the character of the guy, he IS an enemy of the US. PERIOD! Everything he does shows that!
