In the future we might all be charged a license fee to be able to go online. This would be as easily enforceable as passports are today. The providers
could by law have to check your age and identity and that you have a license. This could be done on pretty much a world wide scale. The revenue
(profit) generated could be in the kind of territory as $50 Billion annually even if it cost less than $10 for our annual application (allowing for
costs of legislation and enforcement of say $20 Billion). Also, there would be the possibility of penalties if one has misbehaved online where access
could be limited to or away from certain areas of the internet or even taken away in extreme circumstances.

I think we can safely assume that the future will be full of excuses to develop new multi national legislation on a world scale to make way for
certain "opportunities". The Climate Change legislation will just be the beginning, a nice gentle one with "good intentions" to get us all in the
mood. I am only too sure it is a very big bad wolf with mean teeth in sheep's clothing.
