The author's brief description of mentioned paradigms is given, the author evaluates their key ideas and describes them by using examples. The profile of the newest basic examples of imbalance between these paradigms is provided. The article includes the most indisputable and rational postulates of Internetlibertarianism and Internet-etatism. Relevant views of some scientists are analysed.
