The Commerce Department is going to hand allow transfer oversight of the internet gatekeeping functions from the US to the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers this October. And many are concerned this negatively affect freedom speech of online.

Shouldn't putting it in the hands of the UN rather than a government INCREASE freedom of speech? generally the UN as an organisation are against censorship and very much for freedom of speech, more so than any national government I can think of.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.

My systems:2 laptops, intel i3 processors, windows 8.1 installed on the hard-drive and linux mint 17.3 MATE installed to USB

Actually that would also mean nations such as China would be able to control and censor the web not to mention authoritarian groups (both left and right) could impose there will and censor certain people they don't like.

 

Heres a video taking about it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xu5p_nDcrg&app=desktop

i know mate and thats going to basically have us ozzys bend over backwards for the USA.

They estimate something like .01 % growth for australia over 30 years with the TPP and it also allows any NGO to sue our government for any laws that may effect their profit margins IE(Like what gillard did with ciggy advertising).

Clinton doesnt want the TPP and so for that matter i hope she gets in.

Actually Hillary Clinton does want to pass the TPP as seen in this video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjMGHb_I_bo&feature=youtu.be&app=desktop and Donald Trump isn't any better he'll probably pass the TPP as well. Either way were screwed. :( The only candidate who definitely would've voted no on the TPP is Bernie Sanders. But sadly he's not the nominee.
