US surveillance and Internet governance

Even if the NSA and the US Government restrict their surveillance programmes and limit the targeting of their own citizens, it will change nothing for foreigners and overseas US citizens.

It really is time for all of us to think about what information we let them see.

Are there still people who think it is wise to leave the governance of the Internet in US hands? The main argument in favour of the current deeply flawed system was that any alternative would enable surveillance and control by less freedom-loving states. Ha.
