We are in a cyber-war and our federal government, which by its very Charter was organized to provide for the “common defense”, is failing and failing miserably. This paper suggests that if the power of the crowd is authorized to fight back, we can realize an Internet well policed by the United States resulting in a “better... stronger... faster” Internet. Most importantly, we will be rewarded by this effort with significant economic growth now lost to data stolen by these 21st Century cyber hostis humani generis.
