The documentary, actually implied what you said artphotoasia
Basically saying the internet just mimicks the real world, a few multi-billion mega corporation controlling everything!
The documentary continued this weekend, and has a new episode today, so for those interested it's available on BBC iplayer http://www.bbc.co.uk...y_of_the_State/
It's now looking at how the internet has enpowered minorities, but potentially giving voices and a place to 'hang out' to subversives and other undesirables such as terrorists, activists, racists etc..
Allowing these minority groups global power and a voice to spread its hatered and anger, and what they say is even more worrying is because it enables like minded individuals to come to place where they are subjected to other individuals enforcing and re-iterating their subversive thoughts and 'point of view' it re-inforces their beliefs, and gives them a place to congregate with those who would tell them their way of thinking is fine and acceptable.
Never before has Al-Qaeda & Al Jazeera had such an easy method , so globaly reaching to spread their properganda. Makes you wonder if all this freedom of speech and free will is a good thing after all.
If you watch the documentary, tell us what you think!
