Putin to require Bloggers in Russia to register with ‘the State’ UPDATE


We want to give away control of the internet to others? This is what happens.

UPDATE: Recall John Kerry: ‘This Internet … Now Harder to Govern’ – Speaking to State Department personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Brasilia, Brazil, on Tuesday, Secretary of State John Kerry said that “this little thing called the Internet … makes it much harder to govern.”

Bloggers in Russia, with more than three thousand daily hits, will be required to register with the state.  This is censorship which could also lead to a comprehensive crackdown on bloggers’ dissent against the totalitarian regime of Putin.  Who is supported by a majority of Russians, who approve of strongman tactics, in a country that doesn’t understand freedom & which is conditioned to adhere to concepts of overwhelming state control.

Reuters reports that the rubber-stamping Russian parliament has previously:

…approved moves requiring social media websites to keep their servers in Russia and save information about users for at least six months. …

Until now, Russians have considered their domestic blogging as beyond the reach of Kremlin control.

    Seems like Putin wants his statue to replace Stalin’s!
    • Stalin was more stubborn and ruthless than Lenin who was willing to make sacrifices to achieve success.
    Both Lenin and Stalin, Bolshevik, ‘leaders of the communist party who wanted a communist revolution all over the world, and both were ruthless rulers.’ http://www.differencebetween.com/difference-between-lenin-and-vs-stalin/#ixzz30lzDcxUX
    Rebuilding the Kremlin ‘fortress’ in his image – no bloggers tainting it w/ their trivial facts.
    {If bloggers obey and register, it makes them easier to find.}
