  •  You ever heard of the Deep Web? (6+ / 0-)

    Using Tor and I2P, and other cryptographic technologies, there's a way for ordinary citizens to set up methods to get around content blocking.

    They've lost control over the internet every time they've tried to take it. There's no way for them to functionally block deep web activities while allowing surface web activities. That's how people get around Chinese Surveillance and such.

    The thing is, this kind of action will push EVERYONE into the Deep Web.

    So while right now it's used by hackers, political dissidents, and the populations of nations where their governments are attempting to control the access of the people to information.

    These technologies already exist.

    And if you want them, you can get them here, for free.

    They can't throttle what they can't see.

      Try using Tor or other proxy to get around throttling at the border to an enterprise, such as Youtube.
