Technology Never Goes "Backward"

A puzzlement: Can anyone name an instance when some piece of the Commons, once privatized/corporatized, ever reverted, in tact, to the People?
I can't.
It is for that reason that I doubt the People will ever escape--or even significantly relieve--the choke-hold which the now-entrenched, powerful, anti-democratic forces of the electronic voting industry has gotten on our franchise.

Ask yourself: What ELSE are they corporatizing? They've got a piece of everything we share in common.
