The fact that they are not at this time taking registrations has no bearing whatsoever on this discussion. Talk is underway right now to reopen the application process and allow more registrars to enter. You might not want to believe it but a significant number of persons have expressed interest in joining the process. I fail to understand the big deal about a $300,000 line of credit...Most 3 bedroom homes in the Northeast United States are worth more than that. What is wrong with wanting businesses associated with you to have some legitimacy? You go on and on about the closed society...it doesn't float. The anarchy you propose would do more damage in a millisecond of operation than the all the other propositions in the world. Face it, you are two hundred and twenty-two years to late to make the changes you would propose. The Europian community WAS not asked for input by Magaziner prior to the release of the greenpaper...the proof of that is now appearing in their formal statements of opposition to the GP. Magaziner treated this as an American decision then and continues to do so. This is a much bigger issue than all the CORE Associations in the world. What is happening right in front of your eyes is the most disturbing. In several meetings and in several statements to the press Magaziner has basically said he really doesn't care what the world community has to say, this is a United States Commerce issue and will be treated as such...be careful...The Big Brother you are speaking of is the sheep in wolves clothing. There are many "good" people at NSI and SAIC that would love for you to believe this is being done in the interest of the Internet. I am one of Magaziner's true experiments...forced in to managed health care. So far nothing the man has set out to accomplish has done anything but cause grief for the very people he claims to want to help. Look at his track record..No good can come of the USGP as no one in the commerce department even has a grasp of the realities. Read the technical specs..it is there in black and white..you would think they would have to understand the system wouldn't you? I am not saying the CORE way is the only way....what I am saying is that if in an attempt to derail whom you perceive as the enemy you side with the USG you will have handed the rope to the executioner. I am not saying join the Gtld- Mou...I am not even saying to stop all your negative attacks on it...what I am saying is don't look to the United States Government to be your savior..because if you do you may end up with a sack full of promises and bits of shells...our history speaks for itself.
