EU Policy Paper calls for a pan “European Internet” that will have a “Chinese Firewall” and block services from other countries
This smacks of communist and Nazi ideology!!! Some Europeans want to block the websites and services from other countries. This is the gist of a policy paper for the European Parliament. The policy paper calls on European leaders to build a “European Internet” that can use services “like the Chinese firewall” and block services that condone or support unlawful conduct from third-party countries.”
This communist sounding proposal comes in a paper [pdf]written by Hamburg-based consultancy Future Candy for the Policy Department for Economic, Scientific, and Quality of Life Policies at the request of the committee on the Internal Market and Consumer Protection.
The policy paper recommends some tough actions for the European Parliament ahead of the vote for Digital Services Act (DSA). DSA is a proposed legislation that intends to make a single digital market for whole of Europe. The website states that DSA will “reinforce the single market for digital services.”
It the DSA act wasn’t enough to fuel the pan-europium feeling, the Future Candy wants to take the DSA to the next level with a China-like Great Internet Firewall which can block websites and Apps that the European parliament deems harmful. Many of you may know about the Chinese Great Firewall of the Internet which blocks all websites and services the PLA led communist regime deems harmful for the Chinese.
Future Candy also wants Europe to have its own European “digital cloud” or whatever that means. “The EU should include an action plan for a digital cloud – a European Internet – in the DSA”, the policy paper suggests to the Parliament. “This European Cloud would foster a European digital ecosystem based on data and innovation. It would drive competition and set standards.
“Foreign web services could become part of such a digital ecosystem but must adhere to the rules and standards of the EU – such as democratic values, data protection, data accessibility, transparency, and user-friendliness. “Technologically”, the policy paper says vaguely, “it would require a top-level infrastructure, high-speed 5G or a 6G data network and a firewall.
“Like the Chinese firewall, this European internet would block off services that condone or support unlawful conduct from third-party countries.”
Readers should note that Adolf Hitler’s Pan European dream led to the devastating world war 2. We already have the communist regime of China blocking most of the services and Apps from the United States, Europe, India, Japan, and South Korea. If the European Parliament does decide to follow the policy paper’s advice, it will not only be detrimental to the current world order but also could cause future wars.
