Re: <nettime> Wikileaks: Internet politics in Italy


again about 'global agenda', French government can now filter/censor the 
Internet, simply adding a website to a black list:

I think the Chinese response to Internet "freedom" is an atavistic response based on old totalitarian roots--what Debord used to call the concentrated spectacle. The parallel is found in PRC styles of spying: instead of institutionalizing carnivore style surveillance, the Chinese government uses old school hacking of privileged channels of communication. The Chinese behavior towards the Nobel shows a parallel belief in the importance of controlling access to "the real." The value of the Wikileaks material is in confirming what you already suspect about US diplomacy which is why it's so easy to suspect it of being spun by spooks. I personally don't think it is, but it IS being released by the NT Times which has a long history of cooperation with the CIA, as Chomsky and Herman exposed long ago. Curiousier and curiousier. The word "redact" in American English is a bizarre Latinism betr
 aying extreme behavior hiding behind a preposterously neutral self-descryption. Spelling intentional.
