that just leads to the overthrow of sovereign nations. I don't like that idea. It is actually a Marxist insurgency tactic. Then they are convinced of
some lie and all of a sudden the democracy exits stage right and in come the jerks no one knows anything about.....fast forward a few decades and it
is every failed example of that sort of system of governance.
No, thank you.
The greatest library ever assembled is not a bad thing, unless you don't like an ever more educated people to govern.

The internet is great in a lot of ways...but it's offering the opportunity for unprecedented control over people, by whoever has access to the most
information. As we have it, it is becoming more cost effectivie to store ALL data permanently than spy on a case by case basis. It costs way more to
build fighter jets, than it does to surveille entire populations. Within 20 years technology will exist that allows for global surveillance and
permanent data storage.
I can almost guarantee you that a MAJOR company will rise that's primary service is to protect the privacy of internet users. If you knew that your
government was storing your every move on the internet, your every phone call, and synthesizing a personality profile based on it, don't you think
you'd pay, say 100$ a year to prevent that? A lot of people would, and will.
This is the type of citizens organization I'm talking about. Basically a company, devoted to protecting the people from government excess and
protecting democracy, freedom, and the internet.
Otherwise, more people will become aware of surveillance capabilities and it will come to a critical point where the government takes all power
completely or the people fight back in a less technical way.
