All the world’s countries have decided that the Internet itself needs a government. Your country asks you to run for Prime Minister of the ‘Net — do you accept? If so, what will your platform be?
Photographers, artists, poets: show us LEADER.
I should be so honored, but sorry, I am not. I would be ashamed to accept this low down position. You are sitting there right now with eyes wide open and hands gasping over mouth, right?
I don’t normally make it a habit to discuss any politics. For one reason, I don’t know enough to be outspoken. For another reason I believe what I believe and I don’t want someone tearing that apart for the sake of argument.
Do you want someone dictating to you your every move? Do you want to be scolded for using too many internet hours?
Do you want a stranger reading every word you write?
The more you let a big corporation into your personal life, the more I feel like we are having our souls ripped out of us.
One day we will be alien to who we are and we may even have to report how many sheets of toilet paper we used to wipe our ass.
When and if we ever go back to a country that is for the people, by the people, one nation under God, I may change my views.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate — we can not consecrate — we can not hallow — this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
These are my own opinions I express. I am not trying to change your views or your beliefs.
