Wait, they're actors. No they're druged up. No.. hang on,
when did this become a "They're coming for my internets" themed conspiracy?
Try as hard as they might, and they will don't you worry, those who want to restrict information, will fail. These one trick ponies were not around
during BBSs. They aren't completely sure how resilient the mind can be when put to the task of finding innovative ways to circumvent restrictions.
Where there is a will, there is a way.
It is what brought us most of the things we enjoy as stuff we take for granted. Your music was once and illegal item, being an electronic copy of a
copy righted material. Even for your own personal use, it was/is illegal to rip a cd.
But today if it weren't for the innovation of circumventing restriction, we'd still be listening to cassette tapes. Or god, imagine it, playing our
"Darl, those Robinsons are at it again next door, lock the children up, they're.. oh my god, they're singing!!"
How do you improve a system that slowly pumps your data around small wires? Faster modems? Sure... you can max out the theoretical bandwidth that
those frequencies can carry over a demodulated system... but about 1200bps you may lose data..
Ok well, we've moved on a little, but the modems stopped being 'faster' and became more 'efficient'. Compression.
Don't zip that zip !
Where there is a will, there will ALWAYS be a way.
So fancy cia man can stand at the internet-fair gates and go "Tickets please." but all the sneaky kids will be climbing over the barbed wire fence and
getting into the showgrounds for free.
As has always been the case... they build bigger walls, more efficient ladders are built.
"You kids get off my lawn!" you yell at anon. As if they're going to care about your lawn when their vision is engulfed by a perceived injustice.
You only fear what has not happened yet because you have become used to having things the way they are.
It's not the bad people in anon you have to worry about.. it's the complacency you and all who think they "have" the internet, wallow in.
