Icann controllers of .com domain online now in the hands of Foreign Company?

by BamfOttO on October 1st, 2016

No one owns the internet, but .com names are. In places like china and middle eastern countries this is already the case. Now as of last night now the company ICANN has been sold to a foreign company. This happened because the U.S. government who was the previous owners, contract was up as of midnight Sept. 30, 2016. President Obama, despite some fight from freedom supporters in the senate, sold it to the UN, which gave it's over site to an unnamed foreign company . This will mean a lot more control over what can be said and done in domains and who can own/operate .com domains. It will take time but it will in the end be just like China or North Korean internet. It will also mean a lot more invasian of your personal information. The company states it has been handed over on it's own web page.

LettersToCleo: They already monitoring every thing

anyone types on the internet or says on a phone.

even those smart tvs, samsung said if you want something confidential dont do it or say it in front of the tv because it might be monitored by 3rd parties. it gave that disclosure on new tv's coming out. they are able to video and audio monitor people without consent.

yes, but in the very near future this site will be gone unless you illegally hack around, it isn't that hard, but you will go to jail if caught. This is not a theory it is as real as the Patriot Act. They keep taking away a freedom at a time until are there none left. It is another sleeper attack on our personal freedoms that goes under the radar, regardless of the fact people join and get involved in sites that are open to the fact that they give your personal info to the powers that be I do not. I do not own a cell phone or a facebook or any other social media account and any info I put into my laptop is fake. I will not passively give in to this rape because others do. It is a big deal.
Hunter S. Tompson said it best in the 1972 "Fear and Loathing On The Campaign Trail"
That’s the real issue this time,” he said. “Beating Nixon. It’s hard to even guess how much damage those bastards will do if they get in for another four years.”

The argument was familiar, I had even made it myself, here and there, but I was beginning to sense something very depressing about it. How many more of these goddamn elections are we going to have to write off as lame, but “regrettably necessary” holding actions? And how many more of these stinking double-downer sideshows will we have to go through before we can get ourselves straight enough to put together some kind of national election that will give me and the at least 20 million people I tend to agree with a chance to vote for something, instead of always being faced with that old familiar choice between the lesser of two evils?

Now with another one of these big bogus showdowns looming down on us, I can already pick up the stench of another bummer. I understand, along with a lot of other people, that the big thing this year is Beating Nixon. But that was also the big thing, as I recall, twelve years ago in 1960 – and as far as I can tell, we’ve gone from bad to worse to rotten since then, and the outlook is for more of the same.

Quinton: Can't we just change to other

Can't we just change to other TLDs outside of the ICANN ones? Or even access sites directly by IP? Or even come up with another open source DNS like something like Namecoin?

Not saying I'm a fan of the decision at all, but as long as we control the servers and have browsers that can be programmed to use whatever DNS registry we want it seems like something that is pretty trivial to get around. Of course they can start coming down on people who don't go through the accredited ICANN route and whatnot, but it seems fairly easy to get around, that is if people even care which I doubt they do.

I guess what I'm saying is the vast majority of sheep don't give a shit, know what's going on or even care what's going on. This is one of thousands of things that are going on that the sheep are bringing in. Since we live in a democracy and the majority of people are easily manipulated there isn't anything we can do democratically. That's why I want to start a country and leave all this behind. The vast majority of people are happy so why would they change it? The 5% or 10% or so like you and me who aren't happy can't be represented in a democracy. We have to leave and create what we want elsewhere. After all, that's how America was started in the first place.

I have read you online books and completely agree with you. I know there is no real way to change the sheep in this country and My overall plan is to locate a habitable area in western Chile or Peru that is not cartel infested and can sustain a small farm and live out my days. It always shocks me that the powers that be have the ability to jam their corrupt agendas down our throats so blantently and in our face that still the "sheepole" don't care or even want to take an interest.
