"The Federal Trade Commission’s campaign to abolish the internet in its present form and replace it with a Depression-era model of government cartels protecting politically connected incumbent firms is predicated on a single word — privacy. ... Privacy is just another word for 'piracy' in this context. The FTC’s crusade is joined at the hip to intellectual property firms that desire greater internet cartelization so they can strip the web of 'proprietary ideas' that, in their minds, should only be distributed through more traditional, top-down channels."
