MeshNet – an answer to oppression
Welcome to the new internet! – MeshNet aka Darknet
This happens when governments and corporations get involved in trying to regulate something that they barley understand. Instead of trying to understand and get involved with the people/users they choose oppression, regulation and restriction. As always when governments and rulers that set this type of hostile environment a new set of thinkers and risk takers evolves to combat the assault.
While I think new innovation and technology progress is important in today’s society, I don’t think it should be propelled by overbearing laws and governments anti positions. All you have to do is look back at history to see how this is going to play out.
As this new type of internet – “meshnet” is developed over time I feel this is going to be place to openly share information that otherwise would have been disallowed. But I also feel it will open up a new “seedy” internet where all the really bad sh#@t and people will be pushed, obscuring them from view allowing the to operate with almost impunity. Effectively creating a black-market internet.
Bravo Governments and your complete lack of understanding of the community you are dealing with!
