Internet och hotet mot demokratin!.

Hej,

Sitter och läser den rykande färska boken “Consent of the Networked – The Worldwide Struggle for Internet Freedom” skriven av Rebecca MacKinnon. Hon tar upp en relevant sak angående Internets baksida, nämligen hoten mot demokratin.

I denna mycket viktiga bok så lyfter hon fram att “The potential for manipulation and abuse of the digital networks and platforms that citizens come to depend upon is one of the more insidious threats to democracy in the Internet age. If citizens of established democracies cannot prevent such manipulation, the prospects for aspiring and fragile democracies in Tunisia and Egypt, let alone hopes for the future in places like Iran and China, look much less bright“.(MacKinnon.2012:xxiii).
