We have nothing to lose but our stupidity.
From /., World of Ends: What the Internet Is and How to Stop Mistaking It for Something Else.
Thank god that someone's reaffirmed my love of a communicated culture. It gets so hard to remember to do it these days...
Spoiler - my favourite quote from the article is this paragraph:
"The government types who have confused the value of the Internet with the value of its contents could realize that in tinkering with the Internet's core, they're actually driving down its value. In fact, they maybe could see that having a system that transports all bits equally, without government or industry censorship, is the single most powerful force for democracy and open markets in history."
