Subject: The Internet

The internet does not need to be "run." It is a natural product of evolution, whose function is obvious and essential to our growth as a species.

Apparently some government regulation will be needed, however, to combat the threat of the media/telecomm. corporations. These companies could very quickly become a hindrance to the freedom and stability we now observe with the internet as a whole. Those who would levy taxes against or make profit from anyone trying to communicate across the internet should be taught a different lesson and put in their place. Preferrably a lesson that does not involve such greed and shortsightedness.
