Has the world wide web been a good thing?

In some ways, yes.  But in other ways, no.

Information can be found faster and easier than ever.  But what good is that when truth is claimed from the coercion of a mob.  The web can create mob like conditions.

Wishbone was telling me that you can't say anything good about Republicans on Huffington Post.  I figured that they'd censor bad things about Democrats, but anything good about Republicans too?  This is a type of incitement of mob behavior.  The web can do that much faster and easier than what could take place with the old ways.

Whoever can control the mob can control a state.  A scary thought indeed.
