On the Freedom of Knowledge
by Lee Duane FitzSimmons
The correct distribution of knowledge is the crucial factor that will aid humanity in its struggle to break free from the oppressive chains of psychological manipulation that have been in existence ever since the initial creation of the species. Due to the recent advances in information technology, it is now possible to distribute the written word in ways that were once deemed to be impossible. The internet has brought about a New Renaissance that exponentially increases the ability of humanity to distribute information. As larger percentages of the population gain access to these advancements of technology, the overall intellectual prowess of humanity's collective consciousness will increase substantially and continue to do so for the foreseeable future.
Thus, the destiny of knowledge is that its quality will improve, and its quantity will become more abundant. This greater proliferation, creation, and absorption of knowledge will also reduce the power and privilege of many entities that rely on the suppression of information in order to further their financial and political agendas. Such entities are all too aware of this fact and are currently attempting different strategies in order to preserve their wealth and power. The round world of the old paradigm of information exchange has been flattened by the internet, and now all may partake of the harvest from this new garden of knowledge.
As this new paradigm of information continues to flood the countryside and wash away the old and outdated buildings and streets built on the foundations of information suppression, brand new structures are now being built that will not only float on the waters of this new flood but will also take wing and fly to new heights where lands that once belonged to lofty mountain tops are now new tropical islands of paradise. Knowledge is now free for all. The old chains of the economic tyrants have been rent asunder, and now the former slaves of ignorance can experience the freedom of truth. No longer can the manipulation of the masses continue like it once did.
This is the new revolution.
All are welcome.
