The National Telecommunications and Information Administration claimed the role of America in governing the Internet “has long been a source of irritation to foreign governments.”
Many countries have been calling for the US to give the UN control of internet operations.
In addition to pioneering the Internet, the US has created the most iconic online brands, ranging from Google to Amazon, as well as exporting more digital products per capita than any other nation.
Many supporters from the 'net neutrality' movement believe this move served as a blow to American telecommunications companies, believing it will somehow diminish their control of the US Congress.
While the Internet appears to be doing fine for the US, President Obama believes the US must surrender the its administrative functions to a multi-stakeholder body in order to keep international support for the Internet.
This power transfer will supposedly prevent other global interests from creating their own alternatives as well.
Although ICANN currently does not ban internet domains, the organization certainly holds enough power to do so.
In 2013, the organization asked new gTLD, or generic Top Level Domain, registry operators to block a total of 9.8 million domain names.
Now, if ICANN held the power to influence these non-purchased domains, the organization could easily carry out the same action on a domain that is in use.
The NTIA basically revealed the ultimate goal of this transition in another statement.
“These calls for replacing the multi-stakeholder model with a multilateral, government-run approach will only grow louder if the U.S. government fails to complete the transition,” the NTIA said.
Amid this controversy, leaked documents from Open Society Justice Initiative revealed George Soros lobbied for international regulation of private entities on the Internet, deciding “what information is taken off the Internet and what may remain.”
According to The Daily Caller, the document, entitled “2014 Proposed strategy,” described the OSJI's agenda for the Internet between 2014 and 2017.
“We seek to ensure that, from among the norms emerging in different parts of the world, those most supportive of open society gain sway,” the document stated.
The secretive 'activist' networks of George Soros all lobby for open borders in nations throughout the world. DCLeaks, a new website leaking information on powerful individuals, released around 200 documents related to George Soros.
These documents have revealed the extent of the Soros political machine, such as swarms of NGOs designed to influence European immigration policy and weaken traditional values.
With recent developments, Soros has gotten closer to creating an international body for governing the Internet.
One that he can influence to ensure discourse "most supportive of open society gain sway."
Soros actually revealed his true commitment to an 'open' society when his organization responded to the DCLeaks release of 200 documents.
“A number of Open Society Foundations internal documents, including strategies, work plans, and funding requests, have been published after being removed from an online community that served as a resource for our staff, board members, and partners. In some cases, the materials reflect big-picture strategies over several years from within the Open Society Foundations network, which supports human rights, democratic practice, and the rule of law in more than 100 countries around the world. This attack is a symptom of an aggressive assault on civil society and human rights activists that is taking place globally,” an OSF statement said.
Between 2000 and 2013, the Ford Foundation and the Open Society Foundations, funded by George Soros, contributed more than $196 million to net-neutrality activist groups.
While some give him more credit than he deserves, George Soros is one of many globalist elites that continue to benefit from economic decline and social upheaval in the West.
Furthermore, he has committed his life to funding subversive networks in an effort to push his own toxic ideology via enforcement and social engineering.
For now, the long-term future of the Internet appears to be very unclear.
