    "Wouldn't it be nice if ICANN devoted its energy"

    "Wouldn't it be nice if ICANN devoted its energy"

    Why do people continue to try to move ICANN away
    from being what it was destined to be, a black-hole
    of evil that society knows is there, but avoids ??

    If you encourage ICANN to be a more deceptive
    chameleon than it already is, it may be more
    effective at blending in with society and causing
    more harm. Why would people want to encourage
    more harm from ICANN ?

    Where would the cycle end ? Would 99% of the
    people have empty-desk jobs, and travel at will
    to exotic locations (on your dime) ? Do you
    think that 1% of the people can be taxed to pay
    for a society with 99% of the people singing the
    ICANN religion hymns ? How would that work ?

    Doesn't it make more sense to borrow a page from
    Harry Truman and have a Containment Plan where
    ICANN is bounded, the evil is tracked and avoided
    and better solutions are presented to people in
    the free world ?

      "The Truman Doctrine grew out of George Kennan’s 1946 ‘long telegram’ which argued that the US should follow a policy of ‘containment’ to stop Russian expansion."

    Many historians say also that the Truman Doctrine included the policy of ‘containment’ – his speech is sometimes called ‘Truman’s containment speech’ The idea here is, as Clark Clifford said in 1972: ‘we were concerned about preventing Soviet control of larger areas of the world than they already controlled’.

    However, Truman’s speech in 1947 did not mention the word – or the idea – ‘containment’, and most of the $338 million he sent to Greece in the next year went on dive bombers and napalm bombs. In fact, there were many in the Truman administration (e.g. Paul Nitze and John Foster Dulles) who wanted actively to oppose the Soviets and, in 1947, Truman formed the CIA, told the Russian ambassador he was not welcome in Washington, and said that America was prepared to fight for peace. On 15 May 1947, Truman said that: ‘We hope that in years ahead more and more nations will come to know the advantages of freedom and liberty.’

    Thus is it arguable that the Truman Doctrine was not just a policy of ‘containment’ but, as a modern American University suggests: ‘an American challenge to Soviet ambitions throughout the world’.
