I like what free thinking people are doing, such as those who are open source advocates, they will find a way around any gov’t control of the internet eventually.
It all revolves around the "domain name service"(DNS) servers, the boxes which your PC interrogates to find out that freerepublic.com corresponds to IP address 188.8.131.52. Essentially, think of them like phone company directory -- if your name is not in the directory, calling directory assistance will not get your phone number.
The obvious way around any attempt by any foreign power controlling the "official" DNS servers is for some group to have its own DNS servers, which people can point their PCs to. JimRob could have a "patriot DNS service", with its own database of IP addresses of "politically incorrect" sites. If your PC pings Jim's DNS for "wnd.com", it returns the IP address from its own database. If your PC pings for a name not in JimRob's database, the request gets passed on to the "official" servers.
