I could not agree more. Everytime the government, for however good a purpose, steps in to "help" everyone, they end up destroying creativity and creating must more paperwork and bureaucracy.
What has made the creation of the web an axial moment for mankind, has been its freedom, its universitality, and its innovation. Control by clerks or by clerics can only destroy it.

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
