The free, uncesored Intenet is dead. The sooner we acknowledge this,
and realize that we need an anonymizing publishing layer on top of
that the better. I keep harping about that since early 1990s. Surisingly

Things are never quite black and white. There is a network that is
censored and sniffed but also accountable, and hence less prone to abuse. 
On top of that you can have a network that anonymous/pseudonymous,
unaccountable, and slightly abusive.

There's a place for both of them to exist.
