I hate our government.

If they had manned up, stopped looking up to the US, built nation wide fiber network a long time ago, not rush into helping content providers and say offer a stronghold for Assange, Snowden, Manning, the pirate bay, Wikileaks and so on then imagine all the business and cool people who would have around here!

I assume the rest of the world might had tried to isolate us but whatever.
