That would be one central point, but I was including other components
of free-market systems.

It's what we've got, so it can't be that bad.

'Out of control' isn't always such a 'bad' thing. BTW, roads are also

The system I was 'proposing' (yet another open network) doesn't really
have "negative feedback" only positive feedback. I don't see how this
can go 'out of control', since it has no specific place to go in the
first place.

I wouldn't call it "surveillance" because the information is recorded
by the people for their own benefit.
