It’s funny how the internet that made the world a smaller place because it increased communication all over the planet could be the single reason why we haven’t become a globalist utopia
That’s the problem if you’re listening to Barack Obama and Angela Merkel. It’s always someone else’s fault. Have you noticed this?
President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel are blaming the internet for disrupting the forces of globalism, suggesting that technology is making it more difficult to unite people behind a common purpose.
“Because of the internet and communications, the clash of cultures is much more direct,” Obama said during a press conference on his trip to Berlin. “People feel, I think, less certain about their identity. Less certain about economic security.”
Obama predicted that the rise of technology needed to be managed to give world citizens more control, beyond the simplistic answers found online.
His German counterpart agreed.
“Digitization is a disruptive force, a disruptive technological force that brings about deep-seated change, transformation of a society,” Merkel added.
Obama blamed social media for creating a climate where facts didn’t matter, asserting that facts were the basis of democracy. Social media, he explained, allowed people to get their information “in sound bites” off their phones.
Perhaps because Obama wanted to further his agenda for globalism, he gave away American control of the internet.
Here’s more from The Washington Times:
It is no great shock that President Obama does not like American control of the internet. The internet was an American invention and America shared it with the world. American values of freedom and liberty created the Internet and allowed it to flourish. Now, in one of his last acts, Obama wants to destroy the Internet.
It’s harder to lead the world over the cliff if you’re not the only one whispering directions in people’s ears.
Americans can see things for themselves. We didn’t like globalism long before Al Gore invented the internet.
