"Mark Zuckerberg’s reaction to complaints about Facebook propaganda is to call for more government control over the internet. Appeasing governments in this way would, not coincidently, keep global markets open for Facebook, while strengthening the propaganda power of governments and preventing any more nasty outbreaks of democracy, such as the Arab Spring."

Bang on.

That said, I would support more government regulations of internet *corporations*, rather than the net itself (which is difficult if not impossible anyway).
