Ghost of Jimmy Carter's past

The Sandanista learned something (from Ronald Reagan), but seems to have forgotten nothing of his ideology;
Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega is planning to send a law to the National Assembly that would give control of the internet to a state-run corporation. The body will be authorized to manage broadband connections, decide on concessions to provide the service, and demand users’ personal information.
Like in Cuba.
Provoking particular concern is a provision which allows the government-run Institute of Telecommunications and Mails (Telcor) to force internet service providers to disclose their personal information.
All for a good cause, of course.
Telcor will also be authorized to gather technical, financial, and economic information for statistical and price-setting purposes.
What could go wrong?
