  •  The Internet is truly a fearsome thing (1+ / 0-)

    If your job is to preserve old money, outmoded traditions and beliefs and to keep your job by ratcheting up fear in your constituents, the Internet is a purveyor of doom.

    When unbridled information and knowledge is available people may choose not to believe the crap you've been feeding them for generations. When they can correspond with others freely regarding common interests outside of your geographical sphere, or even your country, to compare ideas you may find minds changing about a lot of things.

    If the exponential technological explosion doesn't kill us off, it will provide extraordinary numbers of options in people's lives. Which is the last thing you want when your future requires you to constrict their focus down a narrowing funnel. This explosion will provide the freedom for many of your current voters and their children instead to have the multiple sources and means to think for themselves and truly assess their situation.
