Becouse it I think it needs to build new system of internet telephony
like skype but running under open sourse programs and protocols.
I think it need that new open-source built VoIP network system will
operate on a peer-to-peer model, that user directory will be entirely
decentralized and distributed among the nodes in the network, and use
encrypted connection insluding connetion with the exit node when making
calls to ordinary telephones.
I think that building such system will protect anonymity and privacy of
people and independence each of us from goverments, corporations etc.
control, becouse we will be able to call each other without any state or
corporate control over our telephone calls.
But now it is not exist any such VoIP system based on open sourses.
I really don't trust skype but I know that today any secret services of
Russia cannot establish real control skype-connections. I know it from
the officers of the Russian FSB which really interested (on corruption
base) to find one user of skype and didn't be able to do it.
But I am not sure that tomorrow the skype team or the US' security
services (which perhaps execute control over the skype team) will not
give information about skype users and their contacts to the Russia
Furtherinafter, I (and each of us, I think) want to  be able  having
connections with other people  absolutely  free from any control neither
only Russian authorities  nor any state secret services and any
corporations and groups of people existing in the world.
