It’s my blog and I’ll do what I want…..

Poetry…. Nostalgia…. History…. Political rants …. Hey, it’s my blog and I’ll do what I want with it.   That’s the incredible, amazing thing about blogging.

I’ve come to think of it as a new form of communication, (as opposed to ‘publishing’ for example) and as such it is changing the world.   In fact, now that I think of it, this really is related to that phrase we hear floating by now and then, “information wars”.   A new world struggle is forming around the question of who controls information.  Is that why there are issues around internet security, internet ‘regulation’?

Imagine a world in which, for the first time in history, everyone on Mother Earth can  communicate with everyone else.    We’re almost there.  Obviously we don’t all speak the same language,  but even that has been changing.  Looks like English is increasingly the international language.  Lucky me.  A quick search can find me in conversation with someone just about anywhere in the world – especially in northern Europe.

We’re getting to know each other.   If we, the human race, can successfully resist the attempts of governments to control the internet, we will continue to experiment with  new ways of making choices together around the world.   We can find new ways of making choices together, dialoguing, working/playing at understanding each other.**   Learning to really listen to each other – without the interference of various bureaucracies.  Imagine governments actually representing us, working for us.

Of course that would mean we’d have to get our acts together, and be careful and responsible — caring and responsive.

Long ago, I dreamed of ‘world peace’, assuming it would be brought about by slowly, painstakingly, moving governments in that direction.  But now, limited only by our imagination and creativity,  we can do it in spite of them!
