The problem won't be solved until you get government out of all levels of it

They funded all these social networks, they keep people from starting new ISPs, payment processors, and other infrastructure with all the absurd regulations.

Just getting them to do something about Twitter or some other social network, or even amazon, doesn't solve the actual problem.

The federal government doesn't. It's all local municipalities. The Federal (US) government actually has a huge fund for subsidizing small ISPs (called CAF or A-CAM). I worked on projects related to this formerly at an ISP.

> payment processors

Good. I want my money processed by a well controlled entity and not some idiot with a MySQL instance and some Python spaghetti.
