Why the Free and Open Internet Is Never Going to Die

Oh well. I guess it’s time to pack it up guys. We had a really nice run, but I guess the bad guys won. The Internet as we know it dead. Hammer the last nail and shovel in the dirt. We’ll just have to go back to watching CNN and shopping at Walmart.

I’m kidding of course. Put the noose down and listen up folks. The free Internet isn’t going to disappear. It’s just going underground. Even in countries like China, dissidents and businessmen have found some pretty creative ways to work around their government’s strict censorship of the Internet. And people of Cuba have gone so far as to build their own Internet infrastructure, separate from the government’s overpriced service. Even Mexico’s drug cartels have built a sprawling clandestine communication system that allow them to evade and spy on the authorities.

The ingredients are all there for a new decentralized and secure Internet that is impossible for the government to regulate. It’s only a matter of time before people begin to put it together.
