Some of you will recall I wrote a bit on this topic some weeks ago.
Of course, I got the usual idiots calling me ‘Chicken Little’, and saying the UN wants nothing of the kind.
Well, Boortz seems to have picked up some info of use.
Note how closely this cut from his site follows my original write up from Last December.

Read it? Good. Now read Boortz:


Did you know that there was a little meeting last week at the UN?  The quasi-public corporation in the United States that handles the assignment of Internet domain names (ICANN) was meeting with UN Secretary General Kofi Annan.  It seems that some UN members and “activists” are saying that the Internet is too closely associated with the United States, and they want their beloved UN to take a greater role in regulating the ‘net.  Last week about 200 diplomats and others met at the UN to discuss just such a plan.

Danger, Will Robinson.

Look around the globe.  The more despotic the government, the more that government tries to control the dissemination of all information within its borders.  The United Nations is not an organization that is interested in freedom.  It is an organization that is interested in one-world government and the international redistribution of wealth.

If you’ve listened to me for any time at all you’ve already heard my riff on the UN and freedom of speech.  Sure, freedom of speech is “guaranteed” in the UN’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights; but if you read a bit further, to Article 29 (3) to be specific, you will read that “These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.”

If the international community succeeds is making the Internet a UN operation it will just be a matter of time before the UN starts regulating content.  It will all be done in the name of “world peace,” of course, but it will be done.  Web sites will be scanned for material that might be “offensive” to various cultures …. calling Palestinians murderers, for instance … and will censor those sites.

The United Nations is no friend of freedom, and it is no friend of the United States.  The Internet is an American creation.  If people in other countries want to use it, fine.  But operational control should stay here.  We’ve had enough internationalism lately.

Amen to that…
