Stop at Drudge Report for this story and link on the Globalists forming a group to move their one-world thinking to the internet.
'THE GLOBAL THINKING' in 'ONE CENTRAL LOCATION'
"With the policy makers of both the United States and many of the major industrialized nations focusing an increasing amount of attention on the Internet, it has become critical to bring the global thinking, research and debate on issues together in one central location," Dr. Kimberly Jenkins, chair of the Institute's working group, declared in a press release.
The 22 members of the "global Internet policy" group are from U.S. businesses and academic institutions, which include the University of Maryland, University of Illinois, the WASHINGTON POST, MICROSOFT and AMERICA ONLINE.
'SOCIAL AND POLICY ISSUES'
The group announced in a press release: "The Internet Policy Institute will be an independent, nonprofit research and educational institute chartered to provide objective, high-quality analysis, research, education, and outreach on a full range of economic, social and policy issues affecting and affected by the global development and use of the Internet."
'SENIOR PEOPLE' FROM 'INTERNET COMMUNITY'
"The willingness of senior people from the Internet community to devote their time and energy to this effort is, perhaps, the best measure we have of the importance and promise of this new venture," added Mario Morino, chairman.

A. How long before hackers get into that site and spam it to death? (I nominate JBD as the official troll for their forums.)
B. If they succeed, how long before you have to be one of "them" to be allowed Internet access? After all, everyone else will just waste bandwidth while "they" will have lofty purposes to thier I-net use: managing our lives for us.
Can you say "Brave New World?"
