Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It's an interesting idea. But looking at the amount of pressure that has historically been required to induce spontaneous (let alone organised) acts of sabotage, I'd say that we're quite a way from that yet.

Rather than acts of sabotage I was pinning my hopes on the ability to build some sort of "free" shadow network piggybacking on the official infrastructure and bypassing the "closed" "official" network almost entirely.

Something like Freenet?
Freenet is a decentralized, censorship-resistant distributed data store originally designed by Ian Clarke.[4] According to Clarke, Freenet aims to provide freedom of speech through a peer-to-peer network with strong protection of anonymity; as part of supporting its users' freedom, Freenet is free and open source software.[5] Freenet works by pooling the contributed bandwidth and storage space of member computers to allow users to anonymously publish or retrieve various kinds of information. Freenet has been under continuous development since 2000.
