The question remains that is never answered: who are the "we"? Who 
does decide for them? With whith legitimacy?

Global Trust has never been given to the IG US model because it is 
supposed to legitimately favor the US interests. This is why the WSIS 
was called.

WCIT has shown that this trust is now denied. Snowden has publicly 
evidenced not only why but also that in addition the IG US model was 
NOT favorable to the global US, people and trade interests.

This is what is to be discussed, most probably at the Brazil 
suggestion at the WCIT, that has been recalled by the UN Dilma 
Rousseff's delivery. Sao Paulo results from a positive anwers from US 
stakeholders (not only USG and US interests, but all those who need 
the warranty of an US stability during the investigated transition period).

Individual should not be discussed in politics, what counts are the 
common interest agenda they serve and/or adhere to.

There is an I* coalition. It has expressed its favored methodoloy 
(MSism). It has not disclosed its agenda nor its Lynn St Amour's 
(according her) coordinated strategic plan. We do not even know if 
1NET represent them or not.
