The Russian Federation is leading the charge for a UN treaty which would give national governments control over the Internet.
The UN itself wants the ability to impose Internet taxes to be applied from wealthier countries to poorer ones. Free speech, as always, is being threatened by the world forum whose membership includes a number of totalitarian regimes threatened by their inability to censor criticisms of their government or impose blasphemy regulations.
To give you an idea of what's in store, the UN's conference on International Telecommunications is set to take place next month in Dubai, on of the undemocratic United Arab Emirates.
If you live in a democratic country, pray your government has the wisdom and sanity not to ratify the treaty on your behalf.
