Surprising how suddenly the Internet which was all this while
value-neutral and thus non-political (so that the US could keep de facto
control over the Internet against globally politically negotiated
governance of it) has suddenly become so highly value-laden and
political.. Of course, the Masters of the World decide what is the truth
at any given time!  In UK, the Tony Blair Institute is calling for an
Internet based on western values, actually calling it the NATO for the
. What happens to the values and political choices of other parts of the
world, say, the developing countries?
