I just downloaded via Bit Torrent and watched Fahrenheit.451.
In this 1966 film, houses are fireproof and everyone is glued to their flat screen TVs and pop prozac pills all day. The fire brigade hunt for books which are illegal since they make people unhappy. They make a big pile of books and one fireman gets to use the flame thrower to burn them.
The hero is a fireman who gets curious about people who read books.
A remake of this film is probably Equilibrium.
The same theme of banned cultural possessions shows up in V for Vendetta
At the moment we have the upper hand. But slowly little by little the book burners are gaining more power. They may only be able to keep the 2100MHz band free of smut and hate crimes at the moment but they have bigger amitions. As in Fahrenheit.451 there will always be subversives who buck the system but they will be hunted down and possibly even shopped by their own neighbours.
In terms of networking using a VPN would attract attention. I can see for our own safety that we will have to submit to some sort of escrow system. Rember when encryption was going to require that the keys be held a government agency who were not going to leave them on a CD on a train. This could still come back under a different guise.
