There's an interesting website, worldofends.com
that explains what Internet is meant to be like. (thanks to @jeffcliff for pointing me to it)

It claims that the corpos and govts that are trying to appropriate the Internet are making a mistake.
Not that they're evil, but that they're mistaken.
As I understand it, it implies that such behaviour doesn't benefit those companies.
That they can't just turn the internet into another TV network and suck money out of the people.
But... why?

I mean, what's stopping these companies from doing just that?
Why can't they make profit by destroing the internet and turning it into a machine for spraying advertisements at eyeballs?

Another thought: They say
>We are all connected equally. Distance doesn't matter. The obstacles fall away and for the first time the human need to connect can be realized without artificial barriers.

And it seems like a good thing, but doesn't it make us extremely vulnerable to manipulation, viral memes, including viral ideologies, etc?

@Wolf480pl We aren't more vulnerable than we used to be. We are merely just starting to realize how fragile we always were.
And so do those willing to oppress us.

@glaurungo yeah, we've always been vulnerable. What I meant is that now we're more exposed.
