Re: <nettime> Pascal Zachary: Rules for the Digital Panopticon (IEEE)


billions is, indeed, an overstatement, but:

the state dept had tens of millions spent every year on promoting "internet freedoms":

" From 2008 through 2011, the State Department and USAID have spent $76 million on Internet freedom programming."

http://articles.washingtonpost.com/2011-04-13/world/35230216_1_internet-freedom-freedom-funds-circumvention-technology

" The FY 2014 request includes $25 million for activities related to internet freedom through the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor ($18 million) and the Near East Regional Democracy program ($7 million) at the State Department.  Much of this investment is focused on supporting the development and spread of anti-censorship tools to activists."
