Putting out a better product doesn't demonstrate any caring or conscience, only an interest in their bottom line.

EDIT: It should be taken into account that the bottom line is heavily influence by the amount of control that one obtains. or vice versa, the amount of control determines the bottom line.

Agree, and would further argue that the net is a Monster that no single entity can control...

Not exactly true. We are on the verge of a one-world government, and that beast wouldn't have a problem with controlling the internet at all.

Without starting a policical discussion, I don't see the US ever become part of a one-world government. I realize that the "touchy - feely's are wanting to take us there but don't believe it will happen.

That's fine, I would never attempt to cause you to change your belief, but mine is not going to change either.

Just an opinion...
I agree. Just to much money invested in the internet and even more people using it. I think it would be impossible to monitor everything and then you has to ask about privacy as well.

Think how big the internet is and how many people are connected to it. Just not possible.
Why do you think 'they' have produced thousands of acres of 'SERVER' Farms?

Milk cows or pull wool over the eyes of 'sheep'?

if the uk government have their way we're ALREADY getting a broadband tax (or "levy" as they like to call it) to pay for the rollout of "superfast" broadband (read, as fast as it should be but BT were allowed to not bother upgrading their network), IMO a worldwide broadband tax (which is effectively what we're talking about to make this even feasible) isnt going to happen
