In all seriousness, they can't shut down the internet. They could shut down high speed internet which involves ISP's, but anything with a 56k modem
and some basic equipment would still be able to communicate.
The internet is very hard to shut down by design. It would take nothing short of shutting down the electric grid.
They would never want to shut down the internet either. It would be too expensive, data is a more valuable utility to corporations than having
running water in their buildings is. No data=no work=no revenue=no taxes.
So it's actually the opposite, the government is invested in preventing anyone from shutting the internet down.
