Interesting. So the United States Governments Federal Communications Commission, perhaps in conjunction with the new homeland security initiative( as if there is any doubt ) , will sucessfully silence the opinions and the voices of grassroots organizations and individuals by denying them virus protection.

So it seems. With the initiative of taking responsability for virus protection by the US Federal Government, it seems that unless grassroots organizations and individuals pay a fee to the US Federal Government, however the US Federal Government might choose to offer justification for that fee or choose to not offer justification for that fee, they will have a uneqivicable risk of computer virus attack by those who choose to attack.

The greatest loss with the institutionalizing of systematic discrimination is the loss of the true grassroots voices, the voices that remain in contact with what we have been created and can translate some or all of that into language that many can understand.

Perhaps not the concious intention(s) of the initiative, but the stifling of voices that respect and honor human relationships with other species and with The Earth itself, and not just respect and honor inner-species relationships, is an issue that may get out-shouted and lost.

Perhaps not the consious intentions of the initiative, but in the paranoia of self-demanding legalistic battles and debates again The Earth and we all may loose.

So it seems.
