IPv6, really a solution or a conspiracy?

It's conceivable that in the not so distant future all IP adresses will be used up even though there are arround 4 billion combinations, but this is still less than the 6 billion people on this planet, in China alone there are over 2 billion people and are now coming online faster than ever.

The current standard is IPv4, IPv5 was an experimental streaming video/audio protocol but was never adopted and never intended to adress the IP shortage.

While I personally am fully for this new Internet Protocol, I do am wary when thinking about this esspecially since the warnings of Alex Jones on the subject of Internet2® and Net Neutrality.

More on Internet Protocols, IPv6 and the anticipated shortage.
Internet Protocol
Home of Internet2

Alex Jones concluded that one of the main goals on Internet2 is to control the content and everything will need to be aproved before it can be allowed to Internet2 while the original IPv4 internet will slowly wither away because of Spam, Avertising agencies, Porn and the poorer countries coming online cluttering and slowing down the internet.

Sites like ATS,,, and other alternative media sites might not be allowed on the new internet2 because of it's content.

While i'm no expert on the subject, I certainly can see that our first ammendant rights are at risk due to Internet2 and/or IPv6.

IPs are much more than just a "one per person" addressing system, so you can't compare the possible combinations to the human population.

Anyone can use IPV6, today. All you need is an ISP and hardware that supports it. Chances are good your NIC already does. It's been around for a while. If anything nefarious ever comes from its widespread implimentation, it's not by design.

The problem lies in the very limited backwards compatibility with the IPv6 norm.

That's where something nefarious might be hatched.

I don't really think there is a conspiracy involved in this. In the beginning when IPv6 was the only way to fix our internet addressing problem people implemented Network Address Translation(NAT). This was a big step to ease the issues of addressing by having companies use private addressing inside their internal networks and not have public space for just any given computer. For instance, I run a network with roughly 900 computers. I only have 3 public addresses for my Mail Server, Web Server and Remote Access server. The solution of IPv6 was trumped and delayed because of NAT.

IPv6 does some amazing things though on how it handles traffic but this is all drawn up by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), which is basically an organization of Network junkies who have way more skill and talent than I could imagine. But they are just like you and me and they have more concern about government control and speak up about more than any of us. The reason why is that the concept of the internet is so free that they do not want to change that.

but with that in mind check out this link, maybe its the government that you don't have to worry about....
