Re: <nettime> Wikileaks: Internet politics in Italy


I do agree with you. I'm convinced that the fear of Internet is the 
global common ground for contemporary politics; this is self-evident and 
before everybody's eyes in the case of China, less explicit in the case 
of "democratic countries" that are slowly and silently converging on the 
point that Internet must be regulated and kept under surveillance: the 
flow has to be channeled - somehow - into secure rivers.
The Italian affair is even more paradoxical because those who govern are 
actually defending the economic interests of their own 
companies/business, interests that are deemed threatened by Internet.
