Why the UN should not run the Internet

As previously reported, certain countries want the UN to take over governance of parts of the Internet.

There are many reasons this is a bad idea, but the name Robert Mugabe should be enough. In a speech to WSIS he basically compared the Internet to Weapons of Mass Destruction, and said it is used “for peddling propaganda … and misinformation campaigns used to deligitimise just struggles.”

So do you really want Muagbe having a vote on how the Internet is run?
