Where Internet policy goes, our futures go with it.
We get what we tolerate, incent, and reward.
Current U.S. Internet unaccountability policy endangers, and neglects to protect, America, Americans and minors from out-of-control lies, crimes, chaos, corruptions, and harms.
RUI advances a 21st century where everyone and everything are equally subject and accountable to the common goods of U.S. Constitutional authority, truth, rights, rule of law, a duty of care, and the precautionary principle.
Proposed Draft Policy Text:
“It is the policy of the United States that:
1. No one/nothing is above the law or governing authorities. E.g., the Internet, interactive computer services, artificial technologies, ecommerce, blockchain, crypto, and Web 3.0, are integrated, not separated from America and Americans. Thus, like every American, every corporation, entity, and technology in the U.S. are subject to U.S. Constitutional authority, rule-of-law, rights, duty of care, and the precautionary principle.
2. Equal justice under law. Illegal offline, illegal online. Unprotected speech offline is unprotected speech online.
3. People primacy policy. People’s well-being interests take primacy over technology interests.”
1. Promote good over evil by systemically differentiating good and evil online conduct by commending Internet good (legal conduct) and restraining Internet evil (illegal conduct.)
2. Support and defend the United States Constitution from all enemies foreign and domestic, and
3. Protect America, Americans, and minors from harm and crime online.
1. U.S. policy by default to promote good over evil instead of promoting evil over good.
2. Big tech not being subject, to being subject, to U.S. sovereign authority, Constitution, rule-of-law, rights, and a duty-of-care like everyone else.
3. U.S. policy by default to flip from protecting technology from people, to protecting people from technology.
4. Americans not having, to having, rights, recourse, and access to justice online.
