"non-govermental" for you appears to be zero government.

I find it interesting that many of the people you support
are being funded by the U.S. Government. Why don't they
give up that funding ?

"Industry self-regulation" being done by people who are
funded by the government, and who actively exclude the
industry members is worse than direct interaction between
the industry and the government.

There are THREE groups....

	1. 100% Government
	2. 100% Commercial
	3. the switch-hitters....

I am confident the first two groups can work together and
build a stable and reliable system that is responsive to the
commercial marketplace and accountable to the people
via the refereeing provided by #1.

The combination of #1 and #3 is a maze of twisty passages
and that maze goes nowhere....
