Tyrants always want to control the distribution of information, that's why throughout history when evil people topple governments; they first take over the radio and TV stations. He who controls the delivery system controls the message. This is why the UN China and Russia have for years been demanding an international governance of the internet. The NSA spying scandal didn't do us any favors. In reality all countries spy on each other all the time, but the NSA allowed other countries to make a public display of feined outrage that apparently has caused the "we are the world" administration to give them what they want. I guess this is what you get when you have "rulers" who want to see the US brought down to size. This isn't good and if it comes true, we lose; bigtime!
