  3.     In 2012, internet users worldwide have come under fire.  Our recent
  4.     reactions to SOPA, ACTA, PIPA, etc., have been DEFENSIVE in nature.  Even
  5.     if these negative laws are defeated, dozens more appear - and those laws
  6.     are binding upon you, while at the same time, they benefit business and
  7.     government interests which you may not challenge.  Here is the silver
  8.     lining in all of this: it is now unmistakeably clear that a minority now
  9.     intend to directly attack your freedom, your lives, and your happiness.
  10.      
  11.     The answer lies in the internet itself. 
  12.      
  13.     First, the creation of an "Internet Ten Most Wanted List".  Currently,
  14.     those who attack the internet do so with the feeling of perfect immunity.
  15.     The names of those who unethically attack internet freedoms (often
  16.     politicians), are listed in all the media outlets.  A "Ten Most Wanted
  17.     List" focuses attention on them and removes this immunity.  Whistleblowers,
  18.     hackers and leakers would be focused on them, so that we could examine
  19.     their true interests in impeding the free flow of information.  A chilling
  20.     effect on internet attacks would soon follow.
  21.      
  22.     Second, mass anonymous emailings can advise employees of specific
  23.     businesses and governments on how best to "blow the whistle" on unethical
  24.     activity.
  25.      
  26.     We will win in the end.  They have more information to protect, and fewer
  27.     people willing to help them.
