Summary: Freedom is ugly. The FTC should do something. The "specifics",
if you can call them that, of the "something" are: (1) abandon its faith,
(2) reexamine something, (3) reexamine something else, (4) investigate
something, (5) investigate something else, and (6) develop a mechanism
for opting out.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: I went to that web site and read
entirely the essay mentioned (A Decade of Disappointment) and found
it well worth the time to reprint here for inclusion in our archives.
But it is _quite large_ so it will appear in two parts; much of it
will appear in this issue, the balance in the next issue. PAT]
