these lawmakers should realise they can't control the internet
Actually... They can. And almost did take complete control.
The father of the internet thankfully intervened.
But the american companies and net firms want to PRIVATIZE the net.
So that you have to pay a subscription for every commercial website you look at. And having only 10% of the net for normal people and having to pay large amounts to be allowed to have a private homepage.
want to look at whats on the mcdonalds menu?
Gotta subscribe and pay for example 5$ a month to do that.
This has been in plans for many years now.
And as far as i can see like people saw the LOTD about google.
Seems google might be actually able to pull it off since it owns a lot of things. Even internet connection companys.
They own every single type of internet company there is that could control internet acess. from search engines to email to messaging to internet providers. You name it. They own it.
In some years from now they could privatize the internet though i do believe there would be really really big riots and i do hope there will be.
Not that people will take it lying down on the floor like is usual in europe and north america. And of course many other places as well.
