I don't feel it wise to make light of this situation, because I believe that it is an omen of things just over the horizon. I think that what is needed is an association of computer users, that would act as a lobby to represent the interests of all who use the internet and computers in general...somewhat akin to the NRA or AARP. While it would be a national organization, it should branch out to become global, because the problems that it would need to deal with are global.
I'm too old to do much about it, except to plant a seed, which hopefully would take root and grow rapidly, because we need it now, not just in some far away future. Potentially, it could become a force to be dealt with.
