Both new technological and new organizational developments only find birth and growth in societies where freedom of thinking and communicating is sacred. The recent history of mankind has showed this very clear. Strong states, disdaining of the confidentiality of (e)mail, the crime of registration of internet behavior of individuals, the crime of registration of travel by public transportation chip cards and road pricing of both companies and individuals, phone and internet tapping, identification demands, personal ID chip cards and the ultimate RFID chip represses the human freedom environment and thereby the human ambiance of invention. Totalitarian states have not been economic successful any time in human history. They're inefficient but (more worse) they kill the air of innovation that freedom certainly is. The world needs new solutions. Not reactionary old stuff.
