I’ve been furious for the larger parts of a decade – Partially due to how our governments and the industrialised war machine of the « United Slaves of America » has treated Assange, Snowden and Manning, arguably spearheaded by Silicon Valley – But also due to the fact of that the internet I grew up with no longer exists. However, I am ready, bring on the storm!
In the 90s when I started hanging out in USENET forums, the internet was a machine for good. Its atmosphere was a feeling of that everything was possible, and together we could create better democratic tools, resulting in a better world, by simply coming together, and together do our part. If everybody pulled a little bit more than their own weight, we could all enter « paradise on Earth ».
