Activists unite, declare 'Internet Freedom'

As I recall from high school history class, the American Declaration of Independence caused something of a to-do with the British Empire, one involving hiding behind trees and shooting at each other and what-not. For several years.

We won, mainly because the Brits had more important business elsewhere - notably, the conquest of India and a war with France.

Now, I wonder if these guys are prepared for a similar war, against every totalitarian-minded government on the planet? Because they will stop at nothing to prevent such freedom.
