There should be one internet and all media consumption from phone calls to television should be a sea of options from within that internet framework. Your ISP shouldn't be able to limit how you consume any media or engage in any information transfer, including phone. There should be hard internet lines and 4G (or equivalent) and you should be able to pay a flat fee for one service or the other or both of varying qualities, and then what devices you connect to the services and how you use the services should be entirely up to you. Got an open-source mobile computer with 4G? Write a communication program that can call other phones? Then do it. No wasteful contracts for holographic profit constructing nothing of value except a savings account which can go to the next rushed generation of boxed and controlled computer devices.

The current paradigm is a kind of slavery. The priests of computation regulate the language and the meaning, and when we wish to participate they demand we bow and scrape and accept the terms of their power centers. Gods, kill the king!
