Opposition Now

| |

I'm not usually one to encourage an uprising, but after seeing how much power certain industries can have over a technological age that's literally lapping them in bounds... I must say this: "Get a grip, people."

And there's no denying that the freedom of the Internet has brought forth something  that no one had ever expected; the birth of a cyber-country that doesn't discriminate, but celebrates our differences. An Internet that numbers in the billions - enriching knowledge to the masses at an unprecedented scale. Where sharing is truly caring, and no one takes injustice lightly.


I do worry about the powers that attempt to control it, however. These are not men, but corporate entities who do not care - they do not love. Empathy is the beating heart of the Internet and innovation is powered by the billions of minds that interact with it, hoping to achieve what was once impossible. If anything, I would argue that the Internet is already one of man's greatest triumphs in my lifetime. We just need to make sure its inevitable dilution by the struggling powers that be don't change the way our children experience it in the future.
