If no one said All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing.”, then someone should have, because it is true. The same thing goes for bullies and injustice. As scary as it can be, if you are going to consider yourself human, then you have to speak out for what it right.

According to these two stories the International Telecommunication Union, which was established over 100 years ago has been meeting to discuss how nations can potentially expand their control over the Internet.
The ITU is a United Nations specialized agency, with more than 193 member states, focusing on telecommunications and information and communication technology.
Google executive and co-founding architect of the Internet, Vint Cerf, warned that the goal of the secret meeting is to "allow governments to justify the censorship of legitimate speech, or even cut off Internet access in their countries."
The later article advises “a story published by the Center for Democracy & Technology about the ITU's work in the area of standards takes on an extra significance:
The telecommunications standards arm of the U.N. has quietly endorsed the standardization of technologies that could give governments and companies the ability to sift through all of an Internet user's traffic -- including emails, banking transactions, and voice calls -- without adequate privacy safeguards. The move suggests that some governments hope for a world where even encrypted communications may not be safe from prying eyes.”
New standards ("Requirements for deep packet inspection in Next Generation Networks") have been approved and give virtually no attention to the issue of privacy. You need to read the articles and see what you can do to protest the matter, now before it is too late, if it isn’t already.
