The very Governments that are elected by the people should be responsible to the people. I can see where in some extreme (really extreme) circumstances where shut downs maybe be necessary. However, mechanisms MUST be put in place from the onset to justify such. And this must be a Multi- Stakeholder Consensus Building Mechanism where NATIONAL SECURITY is truly in jeopardy. 

I agree with you.

In fact, that is why when I proposed a text change in the "internet
shutdown" proposal a few days ago I stressed that a government should
require a court order if a ban is required.
