Uh, Yeah - it's harder to govern now that we have access to information that shows wether you're deceitful or truthful.

Article


Last week, Secretary of State John Kerry met at the United States Embassy in Basilia, Brazil, as cnsnews.com reported. While speaking to State Department workers and their families, Kerry explained in regards of surveillance that he is not too fond of the Internet. “This little thing called the Internet… makes it much harder to govern,” Kerry detailed.



“Well, folks…Ever since the end of the Cold War, forces have been unleashed that were tampered down for centuries by dictators, and that was complicated further by this little thing called the internet and the ability of people everywhere to communicate instantaneously and to have more information coming at them in one day than most people can process in months or a year.”

Slightly off-topic, but the last bunch of guys who hung out in the back room of a tavern smoking hemp and drinking ale whilst discussing their issues regarding the elites of their day managed a pretty good Revolution.

The internet along with certain unsanctioned herbs is a damn fine way of getting at least some of us (those able to 'process information in bulk') to demand a return to the Founding Father's idea of true government.

Does Mr. Kerry realize that the government he's so fond of is now corrupt to the core and that his own statements could easily be construed as treason to the Constitution he swore to protect and defend?

People ?

Want to know where Kerry was while Egypt is burning ?

Kite boarding !

It's harder to government people who can think for themselves.

and Kerry should love the internet it carries the adminstration's water rather well.

I wouldn't say he's bashing the internet. It sounds like he's praising it. Think about the comment in the context of the Arab spring.

He doesnt like sites like this especially. Even Obama has publicly stated his disdain for sites like Drudge and Breitbart. I can almost guaranty that those sites as well as this one are heavily monitored.
It doesnt really matter though. Havent you noticed that when Obama or Holder or someone else in his crooked admin is caught in a scandal, they dont admit to it, they dont deny it, they just dont do a thing, the dont say anything at all because they know that the media isnt going to press the issue.
Then when fox or drudge try to press it, they call them racist, cooks, wackos etc..
Ive never seen anything like this administration in 6 presidents that ive lived through.

Stay tuned for Al Jazeera America on Tues Aug. 20th. They are promising to report the news the other MSM are not. And with all their money I imagine that they can't be bought by the CIA. Plus they are real tigers in getting the scoop. Fingers crossed!

None of that will make any difference unless the reporters for them are allowed to actually ask the "dear leader" the tough questions that the other organizations wont allow their reporters to ask.
I wont hold my breath but one can always hope

"This little thing..." wow
, talk about delusional. I find it very troubling that he openly states that they believe it is hard to govern informed and interconnected people. Very troubling!

God knows they have had a conversation like: "Golly, it certainly would be far easier to govern and control the unwashed masses if they didnt have the freedoms the internet grants them. If only we could shut that down."

This is the same guy who stated the following about news outlets

The media in America has a bigger responsibility than it’s exercising today. The media has got to begin to not give equal time or equal balance to an absolutely absurd notion just because somebody asserts it or simply because somebody says something which everybody knows is not factual.
It doesn’t deserve the same credit as a legitimate idea about what you do. And the problem is everything is put into this tit-for-tat equal battle and America is losing any sense of what’s real, of who’s accountable, of who is not accountable, of who’s real, who isn’t, who’s serious, who isn’t?

-John Kerry


Kerry, along with a certain bunch want to reign in the access to information and distort, as well as limit any other perspectives they deem illegitimate. Oh my gawdd..


I pray to all mighty atheismo that a day were we are forced to participate on a tightly regulated intranet never comes!

I have to disagree with you there. No person in government would ever rise to the level he has and think that LESS govt. or more difficult to govern is EVER a good thing. These cretins are authoritarians not interested in the will of the people, or better governance; all they care about is preserving their power and expanding whenever possible.

"...have more information coming at them in one day than most people can process in months or a year."


I hope there was better context for this statement because on the surface it is:

1. Insulting because it conveys the unwashed masses are incapable of clear thought.

2. Telling because it appears as a small window into this man's psyche. It sounds like he is totally a member of the 'keep 'em ignorant for their own good' church.

3. Disturbing because he runs a major Department and is a critical voice in the cabinet. Do they all feel this way?

Please tell me this was taken out of context.

Wasn't the Pentagon complaining about the same thing a few weeks ago & pointing the finger at Drudge Report being upset they can't control the flow of information, or as I like to call it BS?

This is why we have to fight against any and all Internet censorship because if we give them an inch they'll take the whole world..wide net.

Doesn't Al Gore own Aljazerra English?

money.cnn.com...


The network announced the launch of its new channel in January when it bought Current TV, the channel co-founded by former Vice President Al Gore.


Bought it from him,close enough. Keep those fingers crossed

They actually listened to me once during their beta! I asked them to report something missing from the MSM and they did! Not too long ago they had a brush with the law in the US over getting a scoop. Rowl... Go get em tiger!

Still current TV right now. But I will be here waiting to watch history being made at midnight. Believe it or not, I always have a feel for these sorts of things.

[color=CC9966]yet another

liberal idiot globalist stooge

uttering yet another absolutely tyrannical !CONTROL! freaky gestapo flavored

globalist edict-tinged bit of arrogance about the serfs and slaves . . . and their waning enjoying of a soon to be trashed somewhat truth-sharing bit of communications freedom and community.

This is what . . . the 3-5th such utterance by some famous DEM globalist/Commie/Monopolistic/capitalist satanic oligarchy lifetime stooge? It's interesting how it's always been the DEMs so far who blather such arrogant enslaving trash-talk. That will likely change at some point . . . but so far, the DEMs seem to have a monopoly on the worst such statements. I wonder why. I guess it's the natural expression of their carefully cultivated dictatorial tyrannical black hearts that love to treat others as objects to be controlled, manipulated, lobotomized etc..

May God have mercy on anyone still the least bit awake with the least bit of a brain and a heart left.

Sigh

Pretty sure he means it's harder to lie infecting them with propaganda. So he's for mind control and spinning the truth to fit what he wants someone to think and believe instead of actual truth... hey that's probably the closest we are going to get for honesty out of him, so rub your hands together and hold them to bask in the warm pixelated glow for a moment.

As long as there is one way freedom in west , they allow it.

As soon as some informed people spill the beans and others bring proof that secret societies are behind the scene , they come back to their true nature and show their true color.

Isn't he the same old Kerry from skull and bones ?

9/11 and illuminati

Damn right its harder to govern when everyone has access to all information. I have yet to see in which respects the likes of Obama or Kerry are thinking or being "liberal".
