    I like a lot of what you say uber, but mentioning the Arab spring as a positive is ridiculous.

    Just an example of what happens when information is spread across a collective. They made an impact felt across the world. In their minds, they're doing something to better their lives, sadly the immediate result is that of extreme violence and misery. It's too early to gauge the long term impact. Things like this take decades, even centuries to even itself out.

    I clearly wrote humanity, not Europeans. The reason humanity has turned its struggles against itself is the aforementioned, hardwired need to go forth and conquer.
    Humanity is the tippy top of the biological chain, and has been for millennia. We don't need to kill each other, but we still do in order to satisfy our biological need to have more.

    I think that I am starting to understand your perspective. I'm curious. Why do you think that getting information will make any difference at all?

    Maybe it might have something to do with the fact that resources are finite, and people relate to others that they believe have things in common with them? This enthusiasm about information changing everything is adorable.

    It's empowering. Information will inevitably lead to enlightenment, and when it reaches the right people they will do everything they can to enlighten others. It's the same principal behind the growth of religion, what we witness from that is the result of over a thousand years of communication. People have an inherit desire to achieve happiness, and the information we obtain now leads us to place much blame on controlling bodies. Some may argue that people are happier under these controls, as they have less to worry or think about, but if that were the reality then these uprisings wouldn't occur. Civilization will continue to move forward until there is a day in age where everyone is treated as equal, lest we destroy ourselves in the process.

    That's where we have a problem. Information is just information. Only through the interpretation and understanding of information do we have a shot at real knowledge. After that, you have to implement what you have learned to complete a task.

    That's where the communicators come in. They are the ones responsible for projecting the information and can craft it to adhere to their own message. The difference now is that because the same information is readily available to all parties, deception is easier to thwart, so unless their message is true they won't withstand the test of time.

    I suggest that deception has never been easier. If you want to believe in something, anything, there is a group of people that will tell you that you are right.

    I think state-enforced homosexuality by a one world government as a means of curtailing overpopulation is in order. Failing that, it'll have a no child policy. If you have a kid without that government's permission, your kid will be taken away in order to be raised as a homosexual under government supervision. You'll still be able to watch your kid from a distance every now and then, and, when he's in his high school years, you will be personally notified of when he fucks his first guy.

    The person who seeks confirmation already had their mind set and didn't need to be convinced, nor is interested in opposing viewpoints to begin with. In that regard, deception is the same as it's always been. Open information allows for messengers to compete on an even playing field to gain the faith of those who are still undecided, whereas before people were more apt to follow the crowd.

    I really appreciate your effort, especially if you are as drunk as I am. I'm just dealing with what I understand of humanity. It's a mess. I talk to a lot of people, from a lot of different backgrounds, every work day. A lack of information, like we are talking about, is not an issue.

    I'm really looking at long term implications and honestly I don't even know how I'm writing a coherent sentence at this point. Thanks for listening to my babbletalk, I'm probably gonna wake up tomorrow and wonder what the fuck I was doing. The point I'm making is that lack of information is no longer an issue, and is society's catalyst for advancement. That's why there's so much suffering now. It's a double edged sword.

    Go home Worthless, you are drunk. I don't give a fuck about the ability to instantly share info, excepting how it relates to me getting free entertainment at the click of a button.
    The point I am trying to make and you are so clearly missing is that humans fight each other over resources that are not finite (typically energy, in one form or another). Tesla was developing a technique to pull free electrons from the air, but no one since has compounded that research for fear a new Edison would destroy them the same way he destroyed Tesla.
    People everywhere are the same, the same wants and needs, the same stupid hangups about what they like and don't like, the same sociopath need to control others. The only differences between us are ones we ourselves create.
