Government will be disrupted by the internet

The internet is a disruptive utility in large part because it cares not about physical locations... The media industries having been learning about it for the last decade or so

I think we're at the start of the next disruption that the internet will enable, the disruption of historical governments where it is restricted to physical location. I don't mean the collapse or disappearance, more that their power based upon controlling a defined physical area will come to be worth less and less...

Why do I need permission to trade with a company in another country? Why can't I just go direct?
