P2P vs Centralized networks

Jan. 7th, 2012 | 03:22 pm

I've been thinking a lot about SOPA & Related efforts to control the internet by Big Media + Federal Government.

I'm pretty sure the reason the feds want they want to disrupt the ability of the network to form functioning distributed decision making organizational structures as that's a core threat to their reason to exist.

There's been a variety of Darknets being developed now as alternatives to the white market network. The downside is the organizations with the most reason to put large amounts of money into them now are primarily organized crime.

Also if you have a distributed network that allows psudeonymity you will have spam, criminals, and 4chan on it. So one key question is which is worse? A network under the control of a government that aims to block groups it dislikes from organizing or a network that allows criminals to organize?
