That's a rather amusing position for someone in the IP world to take.
I seem to recall DARPA subsidizing research into packet-switched
computer networks, which (I'm told) gave rise to this "Internet" thing
I keep hearing about.

Actually there is a major difference - 

in one case you have fundamental R&D that results in "Internet"
in the other case you have a bunch of crybabies that cannot make in the
        competitive energy market so they scream that the government should
        subsidize their more costly energy.
