Oh come on, this is the natural extension of the FCC folks. Of course they
are going to try to take the damn thing under thier control.

First you build fear ( the eveil internet and the evil that it can cuase
your child/family/weak willed obsessive compulsive)

Then you step in amongst the crys of confusion to bring order.

How much of a two way web you gonna get with stringent filters imposed?
Youll be spending your life working on new tech so that future generations
can talk with gov approved big purple brother.

That is, if we let them.

Personaly, i dont see it happening like that, not with the dinkum thinkums

But as the sage GI joe says "knowing is half the battle.....the other half
is a good sucker punch"

Long live Jerry the King
