Just because the US originally built ARPANET, um the internet, doesn't give them the right to act like they own it? My house my rules doesn't apply? Hmmm...
Playing internet God is how the US will eventually lose that control when the international community rebels. If they won't give up that control, the internet will simply fracture as a result.
I'm thinking the Internet should fall under the full control of the UN, not any individual nation, which would actually give the UN something they can own outright.
IMO, the internet will ultimately be the catalyst that ushers in a truly global government since everyone is now communicating on a global scale so get started sooner than later and hand it over to the UN.
