Should the Internet be regulated?

The idea of the Internet as a free medium, naturally developing without interference from governmental and regulatory bodies is falsely seductive.

Sure, if we were all good citizens and treated each other with honesty and respect, there would be little need for governance and regulation. If we could live without imposing our views and values on others, if we could amiably resolve our disagreements, then perhaps we could afford to have a free and organically developing international forum.

The reality is that we live in the world where any medium, any environment that has no rules, regulations, laws and law enforcement is quickly overrun by the dark side of the human nature.

The freedom of the Internet does not lie in the lack of governance and regulation, but as within any democratic environment, it lies in the balance of conservative and liberal forces that shape its growth and development.

The problem is that whilst the governments of the world play the conservative role, trying to bridle, regulate and control, there is no counter force that would keep them in check, challenge them, confront them and balance them out.

This is why were working on the creation of an independent international organization that could provide such balance and I call on everyone who reads this comment to support this initiative at www.webolution.me

We have the Western govts trying to push us into a fascist world Govt and trying to start wars with Syria,Iran,Russia and China.

It is the freedom of the internet that has created this new awareness.Let's keep it that way.

I'm fighting the urge to give one to Arjay about how the [expletive] did he come to the conclusion the Syria - who's currently slaughtering their own people - and Russia - who is slaughtering their own people AND helping Syria - and Iran - Where the [expletive] do begin with Iran? - are misunderstood? But I won't after the speech about off-topic ranting I gave the other day.

No, leave the net alone. It'll be butchered just like the bible was when just a few had the power over the truth.
