What links the US and Zimbabwe?

Government plans for enhanced ability to intercept Net etc: “Postal, telecommunications and internet service providers will be required to ensure that their ‘systems are technically capable of supporting lawful interceptions at all times'”.

Government wants Net etc technology to be redesigned by regulator to provide for easy blocking, including systems that “operate independently of ratings pre-assigned by the creator of such video or audio programming”.

Which one is which?

Does it really matter? I mean, the teachers have called (also: here, here) for the closing down of GooTube and similar websites. If they get their way (and who ignores an angry teacher?), Zimbabwe and the US will have less to shut the gates on. Maybe they could get together and, y’know, talk? (By carrier pigeon, of course).
