[liberationtech] UN Body Wants Control over Internet Governance

My own personal view is the worst thing about this is it won't actually add
transparency to any give Nation-State's policies/oppression and it's still
not going to stop the tide of attempted Nation-State Intranets.

So, at best, it's all the overhead with no benefit.

The global situation can evolve badly enough without this meddling. -Ali
