Internet & Networking It's official now. The signs had been there for a while now. While the west bangs on about the importance of freedom and democracy, they don't actually want anyone to have too much of it. The US, France, and the UK have jointly pretty much declared war on freedom on the web.

Thom, although you are often wrong regarding IP (intellectual property), I am with you on this one. The internet will soon turned out to be a place where the average Joe cannot say his opinion, unless it is positive for the current establishment.

Can't we just build a peer-to-peer network with wifi boxes that communicate over the air and placed outside of our homes? it would be slower than the internet we know, but at least it would be free.
