No more spying


All the world’s countries have decided that the Internet itself needs a government. Your country asks you to run for Prime Minister of the ‘Net — do you accept? If so, what will your platform be?

Govern the Internet? What a dangerous idea. I would refuse because I’m against it. We already have seen what a Government with limited control over the Internet can do, with the NSA surveillance scandal. An Internet Government with total control over the Net would end spying on everyone because it would have the power to do so. It’s too tempting. We have already enough powers spying on us to add another one to the list. I only would campaign to propose dismantle the Government and reach a global agreement to avoid attempting such a disaster in the future.
