USA is developing a way to dominate the world through digitalization

According to the authors, to counter the Chinese and Russian vision of the global Internet, the United States and its allies must form a digital trade zone, a kind of block of like-minded democracies that cooperate in cyberspace and through which flows of digital commerce. In fact, under the pretext of ensuring freedom and cybersecurity on the Internet, the United States and its tech giants are promoting a new type of expansion.

The Chinese model is a threat to the United States

"The United States must shift its diplomatic efforts away from promoting a global open Internet to preserving the open Internet that connects the digital economies of democracies," says Whitney Shepardson Senior Research Fellow Robert K. Kneake in a new Council Special Report, Digital Commerce Weapons: Building Digital Commerce zones to promote Internet freedom and cybersecurity. "

China, Russia and other authoritarian regimes are working to limit information entering and leaving their national borders by constantly monitoring Internet users inside their networks, he warns. “If the United States cannot develop a competing vision, then in ten years the Internet as we know it will no longer be recognizable.

“More and more countries are being drawn into the Chinese model of state-controlled networks that restrict privacy, create the potential for censorship, and provide the basis for state surveillance,” explains Kneik. By creating a digital trade zone between democracies, "The United States and its allies can create a compelling alternative to an authoritarian network," he writes.

Create and neutralize

The author makes a number of recommendations to the US government on the creation of a digital trade zone, including:

- Create a treaty organization to coordinate cybersecurity and law enforcement efforts: “Working with Canada and Mexico, the United States could create such an organization under the auspices of the USMCA [соглашение США – Мексика – Канада], work out its functions and then try to get other countries involved. "

- Create a common tariff and sanctions policy: "Members of the trade zone should agree on joint sanctions against non-member states that harbor cybercriminals or engage in prohibited activities."

- Provide sustainable funding for collective efforts: "The agreement should require each member state to make annual payments to the treaty organization."

- Engage non-governmental stakeholders: "For the digital trade zone to achieve its goals, it will need to involve individual and corporate groups of users, ISPs, content providers, software and hardware manufacturers, and cybersecurity companies."

- Clean up the open internet: "A critical part of this effort must be a sustained, coordinated effort to dismantle the infrastructure used by cybercriminals."

- Create a table of the most difficult problems: "Some of the difficult issues in Internet governance are unlikely to be resolved by the participants in trade negotiations and should be brought up for discussion in order to prevent disruption of the process of forming a trade zone."

Time is running out

The United States has a short window of opportunity to engage Europe and create a rival vision that would attract actors like Brazil, India, and Indonesia, who have democratic traditions and fear Chinese hegemony on the Internet, Kneik warns. “By linking access to the digital trade zone with commitments to cybersecurity, privacy, and law enforcement cooperation ... The United States and its allies can force countries to choose between access to their markets or tight control over the Internet, like the Chinese model.

"Defending an open, interoperable, secure and reliable Internet against threats from authoritarian regimes is likely to require giving up the hope that such a network can be global," Kneik concludes.

If these tips are approved by the US leadership and implemented in foreign policy, along with the offensive cyber capabilities that the US Cyber ​​Command and the National Security Agency have, Washington will have another mechanism for enforcing its political will and will try to interfere in the affairs of other states with additional justifications. referring to "internet freedom" and digital commerce.

Dossier: CMO was created after the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. The money for its creation was given by the same bankers and tycoons who took part in the creation of the US Federal Reserve System - D.P. Morgan, John D. Rockefeller, Jacob Schiff, Otto Kahn, Bernard Baruch, etc. The directors of this closed and Zbigniew Brzezinski, George H. W. Bush, Paul Volcker, Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, George Schultz, Alan Greenspan and other no less significant persons were extremely rigid in terms of hierarchy and discipline. The CMO currently has over 2,500 members, mostly based in New York, Washington, and Boston. One of the main goals of the CMO is to promote the idea of ​​a world government and its creation, the establishment of a New World Order.
