Re: WTO an even worse possibility as Inet regulator.
[email protected] did the list a service when he sent his
message, "WTO an even worse possibility as Inet regulator."
Basing the message "on an article from the (London) Finan-
cial Times," he states that
a very credible white paper is circulating for the WTO to
establish an internet CZAR to regualate the Internet...
and he asks:
personally, the Feds and the FCC are bad enough --now
they want to have a **global** bureaucracy play god -???
That 11 29 95 Financial Times newsstory is headlined:
Global regulator urged for information highway
Who's doing the urging?
The Royal Institute of International Telecommunications
Policy put out a report written by a Shell man and a think-
As regards encryption, the RIITP people
...point out that issues such as...encryption...have global
rather than national aspects.
Then they contradict themselves:
"Encryption, for example, raises tricky and emotive issues
connected with...national security and cannot be treated
simply as a business problem."
Whatever works! They "encrypt" the ultimatums of the New World
disorder in any...key.
At the very end of the newsstory:
Global Superhighways, Chatham House, 10 St James
Square, London SW1Y 4LE
I'm guessing Global Superhighways is the title of the RIITP
report. As for Chatham House...
In 1919 [a group of young men who became the dominant
influence in British imperial and foreign affairs up to 1939]
founded the Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham
House) for which the chief financial supporters were Sir Abe
Bailey and the Astor family (owners of The [London] Times).
Similar Institutes of International Affairs were established
in the chief British dominions and in the United States
(where it is known as the Council on Foreign Relations).

RIITP is probably a front for RIIA. I conjecture, though, that
the real publisher of the report has his house in Washington.
I agree with [email protected] who writes:
The main threat to freedom is still internal,
rather than external.
Looked at from the inside, of course.
