I get a sense of arrogance in your post

You flat out state certain things that you actually know nothing about. Things like "If it's digital / online, it can be tracked...easily shut down."

This is patently false. Do you really think everyone should consider their actions based on your experience that TO DATE, this has been true? I'm not trying to be critical because your opinion is probably justified from the little info that reaches the public. I'd just like to spread a little optimism here.

As with the TOR link below mine, there are ways around every obstacle you present and every other one you can come up with. People who have been awake for much longer than you have, have been designing around these problems and organizing groups to combat this. The days of "can't" are long gone. If you can think it, it is being done. If you can find a problem with it, it's been solved. Here's some examples relevant to your items.

In conjunction with the TOR, there is a movement (with at least 4 competing technologies) to use mobile cell phones to create a parallel or alternate internet. This will not be based on any centralized technology or control. You can kill the cell towers, the satellites, the internet routers and ISPs and even the DNS (internet naming) servers and it will find a way to get your data to/from any other connected site on the planet. The software is already being used by half a million people and is speeding up access for those in large cities. Once it gains global awareness, the only thing ISPs will have to offer is dedicated speed. So even if the internet was shut down right.. (oh, I just lost connection, LOL) j/k ...now, those people will still all be connected to each other today.

Numerous other techniques are being worked on for long distance links and I'm not so up to date on them so far this year but they are making progress.

Money, as you can see, can be totally digital and stay totally anonymous. So far, it hasn't proven to be totally reliable, yet. That will change. Bitcoin is very close and statistically, it's 100% reliable for 99.999% of users. It's other problem is that it can't scale up large enough to cover all the planet's currency needs. This is why we will definitely see new (and better) alternatives that have more bugs worked out. It's inevitable since every alternative currency can be gamed (so far). I think that's the standard to apply first, with control over unlimited printing/creation being tied for first also.

Even voting can be easily done via the internet. You may say it can't but let me ask you this: If everyone converted their personal info plus vote info to numbers, character by character, multiplied all those numbers together (separately for the info and the vote/county/office/precinct), and sent the result to a public site for display, could you decode that back to identify that person? The answer is no. But if you multiplied the county/office/precinct info and divided that into the second part, it would give you back the vote choice, right? If this process was kept public, you could check that your personal info existed and everyone could check the vote totals per precinct. Isn't that the ideal electronic voting situation? Couldn't this be done without any person/company/government being in charge of the process? Any number of sites could publish the resulting codes for public comparisons so any change or error would be instantly published to everyone. In all honesty, we could do this right now in parallel with the current process to simply act as a check on the system.

So far, I've just listed the solutions relevant to the digital items you referred to. Personally, I've been involved in the more physical ones. As such, I can tell you that there are distributed, local solutions to food, shelter, energy, water, money, communications, education, information and transportation. They're all just waiting for that right moment to come out.

So have a little faith in others, ok?
