Remember the song “Video Killed The Radio Star” by the Buggles in 1979? Well, we now have a song entitled “The Internet Killed the corporate government” by the One People, who else. I urgently request any songwriter to write one because I am certain that it will hit the World’s Top Charts.
Yes, my fellowmen the Internet is a bane for the cabal, banksters, and the powers that were (PTW). Let’s hear at what they’ve been grumbling openly:
In Brazil this week Secretary of State John Kerry paid respect to Henry Kissinger and made statements about how difficult the internet has made it for the ruling class to “govern” people

“Well, folks,” he said, “ever since the end of the Cold War, forces have been unleashed that were tamped down for centuries by dictators, and that was complicated further by this little thing called the internet and the ability of people everywhere to communicate instantaneously and to have more information coming at them in one day than most people can process in months or a year.
“It makes it much harder to govern, makes it much harder to organize people, much harder to find the common interest,” – Secretary of State John Kerry
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad admitted today he might have made a mistake in giving guarantees for Internet freedom, which has been blamed for empowering and enabling opposition parties to win more seats in the 13th general election.
The former prime minister said if he had the opportunity to do so again he would reconsider his decision to grant absolute freedom for the Internet when setting up the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) in 1996.
The massive and growing evidence forced out by the alternative media , which points to a US backed chemical attack by Al Qaeda led rebel forces to be blamed on Assad, has only accelerated the inevitable downfall of the corporate press that is now only trusted by 23 percent of the public .
Technology too play a big part in tearing down the controls of the PTW.
“Most profound is the transparency and mass power to bear witness created by the ubiquity of new, cheap digital technology.” – Nick Gowing
In a moment of major, unexpected crisis the institutions of power – whether political, governmental, military or corporate – face a new acute vulnerability of both their influence and effectiveness. This study analyses the new fragility and brittleness of those institutions, and the profound impact upon them from a fast proliferating and almost ubiquitous breed of ‘information doers’. Empowered by current, cheap lightweight, ‘go anywhere’ technologies available to all, they have an unprecedented mass ability to bear witness. The result is a matrix of real-time information flows that challenges the inadequacy of the structures of power to respond both with effective impact and in a timely way. – Nik Gowing (BBC) – Executive Summary from ‘The Skyful Of Lies’ and Black Swans (University of Oxford – RISJ) 2009.

The biggest mistake they made is their refusal to keep up with the digital world, due to sheer laziness, arrogance (and stupidity), and underestimating the power of IT and the new technology.
The trend of the new transparency is that it catches unaware and surprises with what it reveals. Many at the highest official levels confess frankly they find this new reality inconvenient. – Chapter 4 – New realities, old resitences: ‘the one dime store in an E-Bay world’
We keep hearing from the people on the streets that the Prime Ministers, Presidents and politicians are stupid. Well, well they really are. Their folly is our victory. So I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to the founders of the Internet – Vint Cerf, Bob Kahn, Tim Berners-Lee, and also to Marc Andreessen (Netscape), Brian Behlendorf (Apache Web Server), and many many others (yes, Bill Gates too) in the World Wide Web for without them there would not be this awesome thingy called the Internet. I wouldn’t be blogging my grouses either 😉 Thank you WordPress …you’re beautiful.
