That said, we have been seeing hierarchy used artfully, as well as in the form of a blunt weapon, for the last several years of the CheneyBush administration … whilst at the same time it seems obvious that the use of hyperlinks and the global interconnected digital communications infrastructure is growing, as is peoples’ sophistication with the tools and services available.
You gotta wonder some days if the people ostensibly in charge believe that they can hold time to a standstill, and deny that people will not use what is available to undercut or undermine, especially when confronted with authoritarianism, fascism and non-tolerance of anything other than a march towards freedom and democracy (and yes, you do hear a touch of sarcasm there).
