Hardware, Embedded Systems No matter where you look these days, there's a profound sense here in the west that the people no longer having any tangible control over what our governments do. Sure, we are allowed to vote every once in a while, but effectively, most of our countries are governed by backroom deals and corporate interests. If matters really do get out of hand, how do we fight this? Well, with technology of course!

We are? And you're not? Seriously?

(And what, pray tell, do you think should be done about all this, anyway?)

Usually after a disease is diagnosed, a treatment is prescribed. In this case, a species that has gone insane I am not sure what the treatment would be.

The response of my message, was to point out the problem, I do not have a solution.

Since the problem is government however, perhaps getting rid of all forms of government might be a start.

Now how that would work, we already have a crude model to work from.

It is called the Internet.

In fact, that is why every government on the planet is working to destroy it.

Governments know where the logical outcome of the ideas of something like the Internet lead too.

Unfortunately for them, it doesn't include governments.

They are right of course. So the Internet will be destroyed.

At least that is what history says will happen. I am referring of course to change. Everything dies, crumbles or turns to dust or ruin.

The Internet will be no exception.

So in order to destroy the internet, we will first have to have one whopper of a disaster.

I am not sure what that is, my best bet would be a world war of some kind.

Many here probably think that would be bad, and it could be. However, with any change comes the possibility of something better to replace it.

One thing history guarantees is change.....better or worse.
