Would the Internet exist without DARPANET?

People sometimes say the Internet would not exist without the government. I believe, like most things, someone else would have had the idea of interconnecting data networks even if the government had done nothing. While DARPANET played a role, it’s not safe to assume the Internet would not have developed without it.

Discuss.

I think we can safely conclude that the internet would not have developed without it at the time it developed.  It would have eventually, though.
