Re: Global Internet Bill of Rights
In China, you can be executed for certain speech. In the US, you can advocate a state succeeding from the US, see CalExit. In China, you even suggest succeeding, you will end up with a bullet in the head from the state. Ryan also misses that you cannot restrict "dangerous" sites without it spiraling out of control. What is dangerous to some is not to others.  Free speech is an all or nothing deal. Also, who would police these international tenets? The UN? That group is a huge failure. They only outlawed  terrorism after 9/11, they failed with nuclear non-proliferation, they did nothing when the civil war in Sri Lanka went in their "safe zones" and almost 7,000 civilians were brutally murdered, the UN child abuse sex scandal, turned a blind eye to the Serbrenica Genocide, called the Khmer Rouge the true government in Cambodia after they killed 33% of their population, and many more.

Re: Global Internet Bill of Rights
It will never happen. US values are completely antithetical to even EU values, let alone Chinese and other values. For instance, US free speech rights are completely counter to the regulatory levels European nations go to with rights to privacy and the criminalization of hate speech. And that's to say nothing of regimes we actually commonly consider repressive or oppressive.

Global Internet Bill of Rights
There needs to be an international set of tenets that each country attests to following. Through these agreed upon set of rules, you could help in the effort of restricting dangerous sites while not causing a deterrence towards freedom of expression.
