History of Computer Science has swiftly evolved in the last decades somehow avoiding the big pressure of International Powers possibly thanks to their interest in its potential to help them in topics like Economic Growth and Globalization and Control of Media. In this sense, they started keeping control of Software Systems on the basis of what is called “Closed Source”, i.e. hiding to users the actions computers perform by obscuring the code.
A trend exploited mainly by Hackers is “Reverse Engineering”, i.e. converting a computer program written in machine language to a piece of “Source Code”.
In terms of current Politics would be guessing what have been the course of action of a particular set of parties to create some piece of regulation, or law.
But the Internet Community started a rebellion called “Open Source Initiative” to promote the creation by, distribution to and availability to entire community of what computational actions computer programs perform, e.g. Linux OS.
My proposal is to create a “Human Open Protocols” (#HOP) Initiative to allow the entire Mankind to create, distribute, make available and promote participation on a peer-to-peer self-regulation without losing personal autonomy but even gaining the status of Individual Republics with Human and State International Rights.
Citing Wikipedia (2014):
“An open [protocol] is a [protocol] that is publicly available and has various rights to use associated with it, and may also have various properties of how it was designed (e.g. open process)”.
