The ultimate goal of the corporate oligarchs isnt just money. It is to end independent (or alternative) media. Also to do whatever necessary to inhibit progressives from organizing online.
The answer may be for the overwhelmingly progressive blue states (Calif, Oregon, NY, Mass, etc) to collaborate and set up their own seperate system, ala Canada, UK, Australia, New Zeland, etc).
Even individual progressive cities might be able to do this.
The red states would be initially left behind in this, so we would have to start where it is politically viable.
I realize it would be a battle to do this, so I want all of you progressive techno-geeks out there to comment on the possibilities, limitations, legal issues, etc.
