Surely there can be no doubt that the power of the people, other than extensively taking up arms against the authorities, (difficult to see that working effectively), lies in the global information and revelations of truth and reality that the internet provides.
There are skirmishes such as censorship, politically motivated legal attacks on Julian Assange and threatened ISP controls, by authorities into this asset of ‘ours’, but the power to destroy our cyber world is certainly available to ‘Big Brother’. Even to take it over. Where would that leave citizens?
Well worth thinking about! Better everyone learns the truth before that eventuates.
