Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely
Nowhere else is this more self evident than on the internet. We have evolved to a point where most of the resources on the web is now under the control and in the hands of the few. Concentrations of enormous wealth and power where there is little or no oversight and accountability. In the absence of checks and balance, corporate greed and abuse is unrestrained, unpredictable.
But we only have ourselves to blame.
At the same time, there is the opportunity to do what has never been done before. The opportunity to compete. The tools are there. Freely available. There is nothing stopping us from challenging the dominance of these global multinational interests.
We just can’t see it. Not yet anyway.
