Skip to comments.A Balkanized Internet with a Free Speech Kosovo? [aw!m vanity]
Posted on 09/27/2016 6:44:29 AM PDT by Arthur Wildfire! March
People asked me to break up a very important article into segments:
China's Conquest of Internet, ICANN + Quantum Encryption [*a*]
It's not easy to do.
For example: in the followup posting we began to discuss a 'balkanized internet' in which the leftist bigshots: google, amazon, twitter, etc abandon a single 'freedom of speech' TLD and the rest of the internet converges with heavy censorship rules. Then that tiny corner of the world wide web gets infiltrated and trashed like a cyber-version of Kosovo during Tito's regime.
How can I quickly jump into such a contingency from scratch?
If you don't have the time to read the long version, here's the quick answer from a professional witness:
Paul Rosenzweig [*b*] warns:
1. Foreign powers will "indisputably have increased influence". 2. Transition a "leap in the dark". 3. ICANN planning to move overseas. 4. '.gov' and '.mil' "not assured by any enforeable mechanism".

The Paragraph that Keeps Haunting Me
Here’s copy-paste info to inform newbies:
ICANN is NOT a ‘phone book’, DAGNABBIT!
Too many people are confused.
Let’s cut through the lies and make this as simple as ‘ABC’.
Obama, Hillary, Democrats want the UN which is made up mostly Muslim nations to censor the Internet.
ICANN giveaway complete any day now. Call Congress. Yes to SB3031 HR5418
Please add keywords.
On January 27, 1998 — ten days after Matt Drudge broke the Monica Lewinsky story — Hillary Clinton told reporters at a White House press conference that the Internet needed an editing function or gatekeeping function.
