WikiLeaks – Is this turning into a civil war?

Just watching the countinued cat-and-mouse game between wiki-leaks, governments, and large corporations, its starting to seem like the beginnings of a civil war on the Internet, probably the first Internet world war.

ISPs, Credit Card Companies, Banks, Radio stations, individuals, are all being targeted. I am sure that underneath all of this the collateral damage to the grass (public) as the elephants suffer cannot be estimated until after the war has ended. The criminal activities that are being disguised as renegade acts to support the leaks are growing by the day?

What are we the Internet citizens to do at this time, should we just sit and watch?

Do we pack our bags and move? To where? When we depend on the Internet for most of our daily lives, news, information, livelihoods – buying, selling and work?

Where will this leave the Internet as a platform that brings the whole world together? Is Net Neutrality going to suffer?
