The Terrorist State has decided it needs to control the internet in order to prevent you from hurting yourself. You see, corporations are too stupid to know how to secure their own networks, which is why the government needs to control private networks through onerous regulations.
People might use the internet to do bad things, like release secret emails detailing climate change fraud or release thousands of classified documents highlighting war crimes. They also might mock the government and call it a criminal organization of thieves, which is obviously unacceptable.
AP reports (in my heavily edited version):
The Obama administration laid out plans Monday to work aggressively with other nations to enable law enforcement to work closely on cybercrime.
And in the strongest terms to date, the White House made it clear the U.S. will use its military might to strike back if it comes under a cyberattack that threatens national security.
The White House plan emerges as international leaders are struggling to set guidelines for Internet oversight.
Cybersecurity experts [who obviously work for the State] have argued that the Internet cannot become a safer place until nations implement international agreements that provide oversight of the Internet, and set out new standards and rules for industry.
The challenges are vast. International leaders are looking for ways that the Internet can be used by governments to crack down on dissidents. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that nations must agree on acceptable norms for cyberspace.
“We reserve the right to use all necessary means – diplomatic, informational, military and economic – as appropriate,” the policy says. It adds, however, that the U.S. will exhaust all options before military force is used [against innocent civilians to keep them in line].
