President *Batteries Not Included just couldn’t wait to give up America’s practical control of the Internet; and on Sept. 30, that’s exactly what he did, when he permitted the agreement to expire between the United States and the non-profit organization that administers the Internet, ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers).
ICANN is in limbo, but won’t be for long: the United Nations Dictators Club is champing at the bit to take it over (https://www.technocracy.news/index.php/2016/10/27/technocracy-the-real-reason-why-the-un-wants-control-over-the-internet/ ).
Why would the UN want to take over the Internet?
Because statist secular humanists believe that “a world run by science and technology is better than any other form of governance.”
Professing themselves to be wise, they become fools.
Yo, Sunshine! You want a world run by science and technology? Well, who will run the science and technology?
The same bunch who run things today–fools, thieves, liars, murderers, and hypocrites: sinners all.
And your idea is so worn-out, so long discredited, so stale, so old! It was past its sell-by date when Plato trotted it out for his Republic: government by the experts, the wise, the smartest people in the world, rule by philosopher-kings. And then you get the philosopher-king and its turns out to be just another dunderhead or psychopath–like Nero, Stalin, Mao Tse-tung, or the cabal of thieves hanging out at the UN these days. I mean, this was crapola when Woodrow Wilson spouted it, and it has not improved with age.
But this is where your theology always leads you, once you discard belief in Original Sin and reliance on God’s sovereign grace.
Let this be our battle cry in years to come: We have a greater King than Caesar! And all powers of the earth shall be put under Him, and He shall reign forever and ever.
But you won’t.
