Oh really?  So if I start using a frequency that requires a license and I 
don't have one, won't they tell me to stop?  And if I say no, I won't 
stop, what happens then?  Will they never call the cops and have them show 
up and forcibly shut down my equipment?  And if I try to defend my 
equipment, will the cops not shoot me?

Sorry, all government policies are enforced by guns.

ARIN is not government, if I don't pay ARIN for my address space and keep 
using it anyway, no cops will show up at my door.  Sure my upstreams may 
decide to shut off my announcements, but a gun never gets involved.
