      The body politic will not tolerate anything less than robust
anonymity, unmoderatability, untracability and privacy, or no one will
be free to talk with each other or the world to design the markets in
the first place.  When the *MARKETS* own the communication lines, rather
than the body politic for whom the police work, then all is lost.

      When the markets own the police, you have a police state by
definition, owned and run by the highest bidder.

     And so we were.
