June 5, 2014 is declared 'Reset the Net' day. Therefore I would like to recommend you to read or listen to this contribution by Smári McCarthy

"Decentralizing everything, encrypting everything, and hardening all of the endpoints, will not get us out of the fascism we have found ourselves in. Engineering our way out of fascism is a necessary step, but not a sufficient step. We need to fundamentally restructure our societal governance models, but we’ll get to that. That’s later. This is now. We are technologists. Let’s make what tech we can."
