Because it is the cure to the problem that is ----> Poverty = ignorance. In most countries the largest demographic tends to be poor ignorant people, and in a world where the internet becomes more and more accessible, things change. Ignorance is what allows for oppression and injustice, and both of these things will eventually be made unacceptable wherever it fades imo. the current state of the middle east is a great example. Another is the growth of Atheism. Knowledge is fucking powerful, especially in a world where everything that is anything is almost certainly going to be enforced primarily by concepts. Power is an illusion and though fists, swords, and bullets may find said illusion as solid as the earth itself, thoughts will pierce through it like butter. So yeah, that is mah mother fucking theory based really upon the theories of others. I think that we are in for some intense social shifts throughout the world because of this giant informational beast. Discuss.
