The number one conservative rule of governments is never trust them. They love the power and they love the status and they know what’s best and to them you are a cypher, a nuisance at best but most of the time a problem to be dealt with. What I worry about with the web most of all is that because we can discuss what is happening and are allowed to laugh at it, then it’s not so bad and we will be able to continue as we once did. Yet the earth is shifting right before our eyes and once these freedoms are gone we may never be able to get them back.
