Here and Now

Post  Seven on Fri Aug 04, 2017 2:49 pm

The year is 2017 A.D. (or C.E.), as we reckon such things.

A tiny oligarchy covertly holds the population of the entire world in thrall, as it has for centuries. However, the invention of the Internet, an instantaneous, global communications medium, has made possible an unprecedented exposure of the oligarchs' erstwhile hidden manipulations. 'Revolution' sits on the tip of the tongues of many, yet subversion of opposition is one of the oligarchs' known talents. This has resulted in a silent war of attrition between those who would be the Masters of the Universe and those who would perpetuate the ideal of human freedom.

Subjugation of the Blessings of Living in the Information Age.

Seven, Good post!

While the proliferation of information through the Internet is most definitely a blessing that affords (literally) a world of knowledge at our fingertips, it also makes it easier for the misinformation to be dispersed amongst the sheep and those who dont know how to use proper research skills and/or rely on Google's top search results.

Critical thinking is a must (and hopefully used regardless of the content being researched,) as most people are used by the Internet, much more than it is ever actually used by them.

It's getting to be that way, now. The Internet's gone through a few changes, you know? Even so, the global conspiracy would still be almost completely unknown if not for the Internet.

One of my original ideas for this place is that I want almost every word, phrase, or sentence to be a link to the evidence for it. Especially that little introductory blurb I wrote up there; one should be able to branch out from its links to every part of the Encyclopedia.

By the way, when you're replying to a post, you don't have to fill in a "post title". Wink

Man, it feels great to be able to use formatted text! I think I know why Facebook doesn't implement it...
