Information is everything because everything is information.
In the processing of information, it is axiomatic that the quality of the output is determined by the quality of the input. As the saying goes, "Garbage in, garbage out."
The infirm condition of this world is a manifestation of its polluted information environment. It is not a genius maneuver to outsmart anyone, and its unwitting architects are not the embodiments of an alternate form of logic.
Our relationship with information is what makes being human potentially extraordinary. The process of discovering this view has been difficult and costly but we succeeded. And here we are.
The people who deliberately pollute our information well act as if they have exclusive access to the fount of truth and a backup planet to boot. If those things were true, they would not be fighting a losing war against humankind to remain relevant. All they have is money and a list of demands, and their purchasing power is not what it used to be. Mercifully, money seems unable to buy the crimes against humanity it once could arrange.
In light of the actual value of information, the only moral offense worse than manipulating misinformed people to commit crimes against each other for private benefit is the cultivation of the world for that purpose.
To begin with, we need communication services that are not owned or controlled by Mr. Corporation and his inhuman imperatives.
