Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The other factor is that elements of the elite have, or could easily have, totally isolated equivalents of the web for their own institutional use, whether virtual private networks or physically separate networks. I do agree that individuals, such as PFC Manning of recent Wikileaks notoriety, can expose much of this, but at very considerable personal cost to that individual. For that degree of personal sacrifice to be sufficiently justified to inspire many more there needs to be much greater impact from such instances. Taking down BOA would constitute "greater impact".
