Russia, China fight UN effort to extend human rights onto the internet


Re: Absolute BS

You're either a liar or spent your time in China with the oligarchy. The people know too well the corruption which exists and the control of information by their government. Not to mention, there are some very smart citizens made to work in box factories making crappy off-shoot items. Imagine if you were put in this position.

Most people in China/Russia countries despise their governments, but love their country. If western culture is so hated in China, there wouldn't be the boon there is now with western items an increase in things like automobiles and other technological advancements seen as having a western origin.

What China and Russia both do very well is control information. They don't want anything getting into their country which will contradict what the government says. As long as people are told this and that and there isn't any opposing information getting in to provide objective thought, the people remain ignorant. In short, they don't know what they don't know. This is how the government wants it... not the people.

The majority in Russia and China eat up whatever information they get from the west. They aren't stupid. Like any other nation's citizens, they want to learn and hear what's going on in the world.

Finally, most American's want the government to stay away from the Internet as much as possible. They want absolutely no regulations, no control, no say from the politicians on how it is used, what is put on it and security requirements. The only one thing they will stand for, is regulating protection of people and their assets.
