    LaVarr didn't say that the internet would usher in the golden age, he said that it could be used by local governments to do so - it's not the "loosely controlled chaos" that will solve the problems but the people who are ready to make use of better communication and collaboration that would do it. If you look at the way business has changed since the advent of the internet then the proof is there that this could be done - if it will be done is a separate issue.

    Hogwash Lavarr. How exactly is the internet which is loosely controlled chaos in itself going to usher in this golden age of federalism that will allow for voluntary and shifting 'best practices' to govern 300 million people in the richest and most developed nation on earth?

Tighten up your arguements Lavarr you sound silly; like it or not we are where we are. There is no going back to a point in history that is vastly different from today and irrelvant to the challenges we currently face.
