As much as we as private citizens complain about the limitations of having to deal with ISP, imagine that all of your critical services have to deal with them as well. Although a higher priority, it's still leased through private companies. Any long-distance service is dependent upon private providers, even critical military communications. Let that sink in a second, even though encrypted, all military traffic eventually passing through a privately owned ISP. It's about time the monetization of a vital infrastructure ended and the internet is seen as the utility is should be.
