Defeating the new Internet filtering threat

We read:
"Just when it seemed the grid of State power was maxing out; along came the internet to short circuit everything. It’s too late now, the cat’s out of the bag and I doubt there is a way the internet can be completely turned off — or if they try, it will be a last dying act of desperation, because governments themselves and their big corporate friends depend so much on it.

Instead, the game plan is to regulate and to filter — to choose and approve the thoughts we have access to — partly by creating dependencies and alliances with mega-business gatekeepers like ISPs and search engines, and partly by legislation.”

Government can not control something by shutting it down. They will use the same tool they always use to control us. Regulation! And with the internet, as is the case with most other regulations, we will have to pay for the "privliege" of being regulated.

It's truly amazing how much you can abuse an entire nation once you've turned them all into sheep.
