There's no way I can see to stop something like this...

Client/server and DNS are monkey traps. We must let go of the nut, or we will forever be dependent on the ISP and other corrupt central authority for access. It will never be secure for the user.

Legislation is political by nature, thus too corrupt, as illustrated by take downs, domain seizures, and other forms of censorship.

The only way to 'fix' the internet is through true P2P ad hoc networking. Only then can we truly *route around the damage*

Neither have I. The line formed by the Missouri Compromise is the most common reference used by the nutcases who want to build more fences to lock people in/out. Extending it through the middle of California would be the ideal for *his people* (except he and his redneck friends would have to move south, into lala land, the horror!).

You and d_r share the same desires. Sorry, no more walls. On the contrary, it's long past time to tear down the ones we have. And there are plenty of nice authoritarian places where you would fit right in. Otherwise just lock yourself in the house if you don't like it.

this country lacks resemblence [sic] to what it was founded on.

How do you know? Were you there?
