i love all these armchair revolutionaries talking about how the government can take SR down, "but they can't kill TOR and BTC" bullshit.
they can do whatever the fuck they want.
they can't stop TOR and BTC - but are you going to fuck with that shit when they are threatening you not to?
they said the same shit about file sharing sites - now many of them are shutting down VOLUNTARILY. cuz they are scared.
we got guys under indefinite detention in this country.
so let's stop all this "from my cold dead hands" gayness.
arguing from the constitution is fail - it's worthless.
you are 100% right. The current internet is broken, so we need a new network, set up in such a way that it is better for freedom of speech and such, and not friendly to draconian legislation and control.
Other than that, all you can do is arm yourself with liberty and serve justice to those that need it most. I am a firm believer in fighting fire with fire, as we all know protesting is usually slow and ineffective.
The constitution is just a piece of paper with stuff written on it 224 years, 6 months and 1 day ago. it is only useful (or has power) as long as both parties agree to obey and defend it. The only binding law is the law that gets defended. Everything anyone ever does is nothing more than a bunch of agreements. For example, your money is an agreement to pay debt as a later date. Your bank accounts are nothing more than a running total of amounts of "money" to be moved around to certain people/entities.
