Even if you nationalize it, the private companies will lobby and get legislation to restrict it. The elite cannot survive in a world with free access to information. Something has to be done, one way or the other.
I have said it a million times. What is mucheru doing with the rubbish ajura platform. Create a frame work to make it feasible for safcom, zuku et al to lay fibre to all counties. At least in stages. If one is not using bundles it is very easy to work online.
The internet would have been restricted ages ago. The problem is that it lacks a natural point of control. its like trying to nationalize oxygen. once you limit it actually, it ceases being internet.
And even if you can, what would you do with the trillions upon trillions of dollars in businesses built upon that idea of the internet as it is? what would you do with china/russia and other countries eager to offer the alternative?
