All forms of networking are potentially empowering to every member, to the extent their wills are aligned. The less aligned they are in purpose, the
more divided they are.
Facebook and Myspace, and similar popular networking tools, probably have a huge potential to unite diverse global communities – and already are
doing so, at some level.
Important questions I cannot answer: 1) To what extent are private communications, through networking sites, really private? 2) How long does it take
to sabotage networking efforts, if they are public? 3) Why aren't more people already following through on jtma508's ideas? 4) How effective are
these grassroots movements, once they gain significant momentum, at avoiding the trappings of mainstream political propaganda? And, for that matter,
how do you prevent the success stories from being subverted by that which they attempted to subvert?
These questions aren't asked to dissuade anyone, merely to generate ideas.
