Re: The internet is now ... closed for business
Maybe. Maybe we just need a big ark to get all the Facebook users off the planet. Zuckerberg can pilot it.
The general public? Your average Soviet citizen's only interest in the KGB was as a way of getting back at someone who annoyed him. The majority of people are hard wired to accept any power structure that seems to be giving them what they want, because that makes for stability. Psychopaths in charge, ordinary people doing what they're told, and periodic inter-tribal fighting keeps the population in check.
It would be nice if we were more like bonobos, but I notice they didn't take over the world. We did.
