US regime ready to destroy Internet rather than share control
The US regime would rather see the Internet destroyed than learn to share their power over it with the rest of the world.
For the first time in the history of human civilization, the Internet has introduced true freedom of expression on a global scale. If other countries launch alternative versions of the Internet under their own control, which is a likely outcome, the true freedom and global reach of the system will be lost forever.
The constant efforts of the US regime to concentrate powers over the majority in the hands of a tiny minority provide a more realistic measure of their attitude toward "democracy", if one pauses to consider the actual meaning of the word, than the words they use in their speeches.
If the US regime is concerned that ordinary people are using the Internet to hear and express opinions that differ from official state doctrine, perhaps they will prefer the sound of silence.
