Good point, ECK... not to mention I've met people who've never even used an ATM and the computerized gas pumps are intimidating. "I shouldn't have to be a computer wiz to get a tank of gas!". *L*
I wouldn't riot or kill over the internet. But take away the ATM machines and the streets will run red!

If there was a complete shutdown of the Internet, I'm sure that there would be at least an attempt to reestablish Fidonet and the BBS system. About the only way that would not be possible would be if the telephone system was taken away, and I don't believe that would happen. Even if that was to happen, those that have a desire to know the truth would figure out other ways to gain it. Man has always figured out ways to overcome obstacles that kept them from gaining the truth, and I believe that they would again do so.

Now even if these NWO/oppressive gove/ bush takeover theroies were true, (which I personally don't buy) your access to the internet is thier greatest weapon. By allowing you to freely access websites that they view as "anti-american" they are in a sense "giving you enough rope" All of these NWO theroies hinge on those who resist being imprisoned etc. By allowing full internet access it allows them to watch what you do and see to help determine whether or not you are one of the "good" ones.
