‘C’, the new ‘F’
Cyber crime is the new ‘F’ word
04/09/2008

The Internet revolution has helped the world in many ways, but as studies now confirm, it has supported the spread of hatred globally. A study released by the Jewish human rights group, Simon Wiesenthal Centre, exemplified that the abuse of sites, social networks, blogs and video sharing has spread more hatred and violence in the world in the recent years. The study found a 30% increase of sites (now running over 3000) that spread hatred. The recent Latvian documentary, ‘The Soviet Story’, which compared communism with fascism, agitated the Kremlin government; thousands of ‘suicide bomber’ games in America, which show the generic bearded ‘Muslim’ enemy, have been enraging Muslims globally; border petrol games, which aim to kill innocent Mexican immigrants migrating to America, are plucking their patience, and so on so forth.

Even hacking hasn’t been left to individuals. American intelligence since long has kept on blaming the Chinese government for nurturing nationalist hackers or promoting contests between Turks vs Armenians, Serbs vs. Albanians. China’s anti-cnn.com movement is another case for example. Global governments must curb the anonymity that the net provides through enforceable regulations that will create accountability, failing which, the menace can only turn rampant.
