I don't think that any government in the world really understands the Internet as well as those who deal with it every day. A person comes to realize where the corner cases exist and how to avoid them. They never go away because it is too complex. I am not going to say what I have known for at least 20 years, but tickling the dragon's tail is not a sensible thing to do with any type of dragon. When that dragon is part of the economic fabric of many businesses, scaring the dragon can make it go away and it might never come back. It reminds me of a Dr Who episode with a space whale that kept an entire culture alive. They didn't understand the whale and as a result used brute force and torture to keep it in line. It does seem to me that exalting violent conflict within a culture or nation is hardly the way to end up in a peaceful world. It might be interesting to have a memorial to those great geniuses that used their minds to solve conflict with reason instead of swords.
