When the Wiki Leaks furor broke out, a friend asked me what I thought the outcome of this “scandal” would be. Promptly I answered: “this will be the beginning of the end of the internet as we have been accustomed to.” In fact, just a few days after, strange news began to surface whose theme was the “need” of a better control of the internet.
My reasoning is this:
In its brief history, the Internet has turned out to be the most absorbing, interesting, sought out technology ever, since the wheel. And its potential has only relatively been scratched. Why, its the most perfect means of control ever devised, that can tag you and pinpoint you in the comfort of your living room, so to speak, even if this is not yet a completed fact, but it will be very soon, when it will englobe Rdif and other emergent technologies of body applications. The perfect control system for the Antichrist. (Let’s remember, however, that “perfect” is only what God does, anything else will have its problems).
Radio, television, phones, cell phones, satellites, Wifi, and all upcoming technologies are all tied together by the properly named NET. They were not kidding when they started by naming it the Word Wide Web. That’s what those funny www mean, when we write a web address: world wide web, otherwise known as The Net. Makes you wonder if those who started it were on unto something. Another thing that must not be overlooked is that the Net is “free.” Yes I know, there is no free lunch, but were we able to make free phone calls when they invented the phone? No, we paid and paid and so with any other service. But to get into the Internet is basically free, all you need is a device that can access it. They made it all very easy to partake and I smell a rat or should I say a Trojan Horse.
Wiki Leaks may provide the turning point for placing controls on something which apparently has been quite anarchic from its very inception. It may be that all that “freedom” is not good for people, you know, the terrorists, the criminals, the crazies, why they all have access to the Internet and God only knows what evil and havoc their limb hands over a keyboard can wreak. So, let’s go and regulate all this anarchy, they are starting to say (finally aloud).
In truth, some nations (notably China, Islamic countries and regimes) have already placed controls on what can be distributed on their territories. But these web rascals find always new ways to get around controls. It has been a cat and mouse game up to now. But now, the biggies (ONU, the American Government and diverse Western democracies) are jumping into the band wagon. Since I am not a believer in secret plots, I have to say that it is all coincidental, as far as humans go.
Officials from 18 countries held an impromptu, late-night meeting earlier this month at the United Nations office in Geneva, and made a decision that rattled Internet technocrats around the world.
Autocratic governments like China and Iran attended the meeting, as did several democratic ones. Despite protests by Portugal and the United States, they voted to staff a working group on the future of the Internet Governance Forum — an important theatre of discussion on matters of cyberspace — by governments alone.
The seemingly arcane move reverberated through a community of technical experts, academics and civil society groups who felt they had been unfairly excluded.
Fourteen technical organizations that help oversee how cyberspace runs wrote an open letter asking the UN Commission on Science and Technology for Development (UNCSTD) to reverse its decision. Meanwhile the Internet Society, an umbrella group that helps manage technical standards online, posted a petition to its web site in protest.

And as I am writing this article this news comes up:

STANFORD, Calif. – President Obama is planning to hand the U.S. Commerce Department authority over a forthcoming cyber security effort to create an Internet ID for Americans, a White House official said here today.
It’s “the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government” to centralize efforts toward creating an “identity ecosystem” for the Internet, White House Cyber security Coordinator Howard Schmidt said.
That news, first reported by CNET, effectively pushes the department to the forefront of the issue, beating out other potential candidates including the National Security Agency and the Department of Homeland Security. The move also is likely to please privacy and civil liberties groups that have raised concerns in the past over the dual roles of police and intelligence agencies.
Here it goes, folks!
To me, it’s unbelievable how people fall so easily into a trap, which is cleverly disguised as something to be desired, which can help us all live better and securely.
I am keeping this short, (just Google “internet control”, if you need to amplify) but I think what I am trying to say here is evident, for those who have eyes to see it. Since we are a web site which deals with Christianity some may ask “what has this to do with Jesus Christ.” Quite a bit. We know that the Antichrist wants and will control people. The Internet in its present and future incantations will be the medium of choice.
The moral is: use the Internet, BUT BE AWARE that there is coming a moment in time when the Internet will be using you.
A tale of two NETS:
Someone is casting a NET to catch men, and his purpose is totally evil (control, enslavement, death).
Two thousand years ago, Someone cast His NET to catch men and His purpose was totally good (freedom, eternal life). To His disciples many of whom were fishermen, Jesus asked them to forget the fishes and
Then He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.”
In which NET are YOU in?
