Money to be made from a feudal internet

If all the clients have to connect through CGNATs this enables what the proles do to be more rigorously controlled by everyone from governments which don't like encryption to cloud service providers which will be in control of person to person exchanges and all the crap IOT stuff they flog which captures our every thought and movement. Allow ordinary users to run programs acting as servers on their own premises and all hell breaks loose with this centralised money making control model. Many if not most of the powerful players here clearly have little interest in us upgrading to IPV6.
