“Which government? There are many. But do you mean the feds? Didnt they invent the Internet?”
The Feds did create the forerunner of the Internet - called DARPANET; the “D” was for defense. It was a military thing.
I’d like to back it completely our. Pay no taxes and ask for nothing in return, no social security, no fire dept, no police department, no public schools, I’ll take care of things myself.
