Nice anti-American rant. We're not a socialist country (well, not
completely yet anyway). Those who prefer socialism over self
responsibility have other options on where to live.
Carrying any services for a non-payer is not a moral imperative.
Companies exist to make money, not to provide services to people who
can't pay. The ILEC/CLEC has special privileges and thus has special
responsibilities, but a VoIP carrier doesn't get any of those special
privileges and is not bound by the special responsibilities.
It would be nice to avoid political ranting on an international list.
