    Unless absolutely necessary I'd like our government, which would have failed long ago if it were a business, to stay the hell outta policing the internet or telling Google how to operate. Every time that camel sticks its nose in a tent things go to hell. Government isnt a cure to our problems... it IS the problem.

    That's true, but the government is the one which instituted these systems. Knowing that it's hard to see more government action as the solution. This is why I think antitrust laws and suits are a joke.

    I agree with Rob completely, but I would just point out that what we have isn't a real free market exactly because of all the government intrusions. It is simply corporatism with a highly managed market. There is some freedom in it, but it's nearly impossible to see where the government coercion/regulation ends and true market signals (voluntary decision making by individuals) begins.

    Have you ever though about one step above governments? It could be a bunch of intellectual organizations more or less known...to influence policies.

    Of course. I know some might call this the realm of "conspiracy theories", but it shouldn't come as a gasping surprise that people collaborate and "conspire" over common goals, and those people can obviously include the wealthiest people in the world.

    That specifically isn't any more worrying to me than people who believe that government coercion is the answer to social problems. If they didn't believe so, en-masse, whoever has the wealth and guns wouldn't matter as much. Their wealth and power still depends in huge part on the hundreds of millions of people who give their tactics memetic sanction and buy their stuff. But.. that's a big big topic.
