Your missing the point though - The govt won't do something unless they do it with a big bang ;)
All for one or one for all? I believe that's the saying.
So long as the govt gets its way - we will all be subject to its control and oversight.

Or even just have the govt setup a big HTTP proxy server, and anyone who wants to 'opt in' to the filter, pops the .pac (iirc?) file in their browser settings?
My neice was complaining last night that she can't access half the internet on her school-supplied laptop, even when at home.. So I went digging, and sure enough, it's set to use the DET proxy even when they're off the DET network.. Sure, a quick redirect on the router at home back to squid, fixed that up for her while she's visiting us, but it occurred to me just now that that'd be a decent solution for home users who DO want filtered Internet. - And ISP's don't really have to do a thing.. Govt just peers at all the peering points to keep the cost of customers who use the proxy down, and maintenance of the entire thing is on the Govt..
Just a thought :)
