Yes, against all of it

Start up a private, mesh-based network with other economic activists and abandon "internet" altogether.

Similar, if not simple, solutions exist for every other form of egregious leviathan fraud.

Takes courage, for sure, more courage than "Hit the streets and scream at politicians about all the stuff you demand from others" (I'm looking in your direction, Europe). Economic activism is the only legitimate way forward for civilization, ever.

Put it this way: only one form of activism is intended to be an easy "special interest" way forward based on coercing others. Here is a decent read: http://www.amazon.com/State-Franz-Oppenheimer/dp/1115878689/...

Again, it's not easy. Many people will claim that "...it's a waste of time, the system is set up already so work instead from within." Such people, of course, have already dedicated themselves to a life of corruption.

Garan's picture

I would say do both.

The more successful the private network becomes, the less likely the public network will be controlled, since the alternative network makes over-all control unfeasible. Honestly, ultimately, I don't think information communication is controllable. It's a new era. Centralization of power is impossible with open systems and information. However, the attempts of control may create atrocious tragedies along the way.

One thing I'll point out though, is that the public network actually is a bunch of private organizations that happen to offer public access and aside from paid access points, offers free communication and information (as well as non-free). All done without the need for the protections of a central government. It was created in the academic world (even though the initial contracts were from government defense contracts). I would say it probably would have been created without defense spending as well. The need, possibility, invention, and innovation was an inevitable evolution in my opinion.

I guess I'm rambling. So I'll just stop.
I'll check out your link later. Thanks.
