Douglas Rushkoff » Just Another CyberWar
No, the real lesson of the WikiLeaks affair and subsequent cyberattacks is not how unwieldy the net has become, but rather how its current architecture renders it so susceptible to control from above.
It was in one of the leaked cables that China’s State Council Information office delivered its confident assessment that thanks to “increased controls and surveillance, like real-name registration … The Web is fundamentally controllable.”

Surf Free or Die? (Disassembled Spaces)
From the Left, then, the regulation that Net Neutrality proposes simply provides us with a front seat to the battle of the media giants, while not really giving us any power to intervene in the process. From the Right, deregulation is seen as the only way to guarantee competition, even though deregulation creates monopolies which are… well… anti-competitive. In both cases we are positioned as passive consumers, and in both cases corporate interests are well protected. We have created a system where neither regulation nor deregulation interfere with the corporate status quo.
