Dear Seun,

you think in structures of the capitalistic environments. The principles 
of that are the centralisation and monopolisation.

If you think in a more decentralized environment, then you can find more 
and more the real basics of economy.

For our communication system it is similar to all others areas, in that 
we are activ. Like watersystems, electrical and thermal energy, seeds, 
transport systems and his basics, agriculture and landscape development, 
material technology and so on.

In general we need the local technical infrastructures for design, 
construct and building of that, what we need or think to need.

And, of course, the communication system is the most important 
instrument on this way. For the free access to the free knowledge. And 
this is not a philosophical problem of chicken and egg. We construct 
with this bad system a better one.

Never this development is a question of money. It is a question for the 
activity of people. But as an atomic seperated actors you never can go 
this way. Only as a part of a community it is possible.

many greetings, willi
Panama City
