Yeah no doubt that there was an intention behind deploying the internet - the development of it by DARPA should send alarm bells ringing, but it doesn't for many people. What I am saying is that I don't think that they can contain the pandora's box that has opened in the realms of the communication that can and has occurred through the internet although that might have been the intent. They don't control all avenues of potential and I really think we have to realize that and meditate on that as we see how control mechanisms have been implemented. I think it is important to be aware but at the same time we have to balance that with a realization that the system is not omnipotent and does not have it all figured out.
