China set to dominate internet

From Joshua Philipp at Epoch Times:

The handover of ICANN, the body that governs domain name registration, fits into a strategy by the Chinese regime to determine how the internet is run

In November 2014, Li Yuxiao, a research fellow at the Chinese Academy of Cyberspace, stated, according to the state-run China Daily: “Now is the time for China to realize its responsibilities. If the United States is willing to give up its running of the internet sphere, the question comes as to who will take the baton and how it would be run.

“We have to first set our goal in cyberspace, and then think about the strategy to take, before moving on to refining our laws,” he said.More.

Reality check: Progressive rulers in the United States and Europe will find it quite easy to “pass the baton” (so to speak) to China when dealing with dometic dissidents.

    This won’t kill the internet. It will change it, probably for the better.
    Look forward to the proliferation of private sector DNS services.
    Of course, your owners will call them “pirate” or “Dark Web” DNS services, and many of you will fall for that lie, and scream for your safe spaces, just like you did with the Silk Road, BitCoin and TOR.

      Most of the internet is a conglomeration of private servers, and private pathways between the servers. The only thing that allows China to be so blatant about their censorship is that their are limited cross sections into their country. They are continually losing control of that power what with the introduction of VPN’s of international companies that do business there since they need unhindered communications with the rest of the world. The more governments try to control the internet, the more people will find ways around their restrictions.

    • I’m running OpenDNS using DNSCrypt. You might want to look into it, really easy to implement, free. Actually has better performance than the norms.
