How freedom can have little to do with freedom

"America’s willingness to stand up for the internet should be welcomed.
But it has to be said that in doing so it is also defended its interests: no other country benefits as much from the status quo in the online world.
Since much of the internet’s infrastructure is based in America and most of its traffic zips through it, America is in a unique position to eavesdrop, should it be so inclined.
America’s internet firms also capture most of the profit pool of the online industry."
