The internet can act like a good book as far as it makes the stupid more stupid and the intelligent more intelligent.

But first and foremost it raises complexity dramatically and makes organizational malfunctions increasingly more transparent.

As traditional steering systems decline, alternative ideologies emerge (and there is little that cannot become an ideology or even religion).

Where cognitive dissonances have been handled centrally in the past, there are quite similar decentralized forms of control today. Where the dissonances get too strong, we can notice a return to even more rigid forms of the old same.

Both forms won’t solve their basic problem without breaking the ultimate taboo (which also helps mitigating conflicts between the parties).

Anything else is just random and symbolism.
