1984 Was Wrong; Technology Will Liberate Those Who Seek LibertySubmitted by No.7 on Sun, 03/24/2013 - 10:25
Please do not misinterpret what I say, I'm a big fan of 1984 and believe in Orwell's message to America. However, contrary to 1984's vision of a robotic police and surveillance state, technology has liberated far more people than it has enslaved.
The age of information has leveled the playing field so to speak because almost anyone has access to information that was only available to the privileged in the past. It used to be true that you had to go to college to get a quality education but these days one only has to search the internet. For the first time in the history of the world almost anyone with internet access can get a first class education. Knowledge is power and the keys to knowledge are know only a click away. Those who seek truth now have access to truth and thus, access to freedom. As Ben Carson pointed out,
"it was illegal in the Antebellum south to teach a slave to read because to educate is to liberate."
and as Jesus told us in John 8:32
"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free"
Keep learning and spreading the truth everyone. Freedom is at our fingertips, let freedom ring!
