Undoubtedly. Also, there will be an increasing "need" to watch, to protect, to administer the web at some point as the "government" points fingers at, oh, say Russia for hacking this and that. It's a very slippery slope, indeed. These people do not even need proof, they can invent a story, adopt a talking point, and let the corporate media pound it into the minds of Americans before it is widely accepted (and protested by folks like us), but nevertheless, they will have their policies, they will have their "laws", they will have the control they want. It's no different than it is right now, it's just the idea of protection on a global scale that should be a warning to people. Washington's hands are clean when a foreign foe interrupts the internet and espionage is the talk of the town. But, I guess it gives some people comfort to believe this isn't a big deal. "There's no way an international band of genocidal maniacs are going to ever control the internet!" --We shall see.
