First steps taken towards global information censorship

How best can we keep information to ourselves and prevent ordinary people exchanging it?

That is the question being asked by the global political class as the United Nations, now confirmed as an entity committed to global control, considers setting up an intergovernmental working group to ‘harmonise global efforts by policy makers to regulate the internet’.

Regulation. Censorship. Control. Repression.

As iTnews reports:

At a meeting in New York on Wednesday, representatives from Brazil called for an international body made up of Government representatives that would to attempt to create global standards for policing the internet – specifically in reaction to challenges such as WikiLeaks.

The Brazilian delegate stressed, however, that this should not be seen as a call for an “takeover” of the internet.

Of course they don’t want it to be seen as that, but that’s what it is. The political class has seen how the information age has brought with it the ability of ordinary people to scrutinise their behaviour and expose their actions. Politicians around the globe cannot stand any examination of what they do and resent the opportunity that has been provided for ordinary people to spread awareness and share information around the world in seconds at the click of a mouse, without state control or sanction.

Because states have different rules ordinary people have been able to shop around for locations in which to host data where freedom of speech is protected. The only way to exert control over what people can say, write, watch, listen to and read online is to have harmonised regulation that facilitates global control over what will be permitted to be shared around the ether and what will be censored because it is inconvenient to the politicians.

So here we are, just days after global climate change conference in Cancun where plans were being made for centralised UN control over the redistribution of money, learning that plans are being made for centralised UN control over internet content.

Is there anyone who still scoffs at the notion of a developing world order? One that is committed to eradicating democracy and using regional supranational entities, like the EU, as the local branches of its governance structure with power in the hands of unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats.

If I had read this post elsewhere a couple of years ago I would have laughed at it and had visions of conspiracy theorists and foil hats. But the fact is the evidence is being presented openly like pieces of a jigsaw. On their own the pieces seem fairly inconsequential, but when put together to complete the picture you can see what is happening. Even then many people would tell themselves ‘oh that’s just ludicrous, don’t be so stupid’. It is not ludicrous, it is real and those of us who live in nominal democracies risk experiencing what it’s like living under complete state control.

This isn’t about the aims of secret societies, Freemasons, Illuminati or shadowy organisations. It is simply the aim of the self selecting political class and their well known financial backers and beneficiaries. It is happening openly in plain sight.

    It’s not easy to know what to make of such antics. I can’t really see an ambitious bureaucracy such as the EU ceding such important regulatory powers to the UN – another ambitious bureaucracy.

    Bureaucracies tend to be stupid – one reason why should get rid of them. Where we can’t get rid of them, a somewhat offsetting advantage is that they tend not to achieve their aims. I hope this applies here.

    You’re not wrong.

    Who’s not wrong? Not AM, we are about to experience silencing. Back to writing letters and emailing under surveillance. MSM the only aperture, and totally blinkered. The elite are worried, we have rumbled them and they are about to close us down. Maybe that will get people on the streets, and met with water canon, baton and bullet.

    The UN trumps the EU, and may well be its movers and shifters, itself the engine behind OWG and a eugenics program of plague, pestilence, and persecution. Unless a few spanners can be inserted by the billions affected.

    Great changes ahead, and if we are to survive, it will not be by doing nothing.

    I was at Vaclav Klaus’s lecture in London a couple of months ago. He was quite clear that “global governance” is a regular topic of conversation at heads of government meetings. Scary.

    Thanks for that insight Andrew. What never ceases to amaze me is that even when a world leader such as Klaus confirms what many people are saying, others continue mock them as conspiracy theorists.

    Oh, this is no conspiracy.
