ICANN is the people that watches over domain names and decides what happens. Unfortunately for the rest of the world ICANN is also in the US and under the power of the US.
The US government is on a mission to censor the internet, lock up law abiding citizens in concentration camps, invade countries that have oil and to strip their citizens of their rights.
The one most people in other countries should be worried about is the first point. This week the US government ceased and censored 76 domains. These domains were mostly torrent sites but it shows the direction the US is heading.
Does that mean the rest of the internet is in danger?
As usual the US is forcing their views upon the rest of the world.
Just like the “war on terror” started by taking the aim at real terrorists and then turned that war on law abiding US citizens the same will happen with the internet. They will first go for the so called copyright infringers to test the ground. Then they will change their game to take over any domain that is against the US and that disagrees with the policies of the US, like activists, political groups or anyone that can expose or take power from the government.
The internet is in danger because it depends on a fascist government to be free and uncensored.
