Sec. of State John Kerry Bashes the Internet, Says it’s Harder to Govern People with Internet

Last week, Secretary of State John Kerry met at the United States Embassy in Basilia, Brazil, as 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.
Going deeper into his explanation as to why he disfavors the Internet, the Secretary of State told his listeners, “I’m a student of history, and I love to go back and read a particularly great book like Kissinger’s book about diplomacy where you think about the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and the balance of power and how difficult it was for countries to advance their interests and years and years of wars.”
State Department personnel then heard Kerry say, “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.”
Such a statement may come off as disgruntling to many who use the internet as a powerful tool to learn things that they may not have ever learned from their schooling or social circles. The internet not only fuels social networking and other communications, but it has also been the driving force that has influenced the liberty movement and other political and ‘awakening’ movements to prosper.
It [the internet] makes it much harder to govern, it makes it much harder to organize people, much harder to find the common interest and that is complicated by a rise of sectarianism and religious extremism that is prepared to employ violent means to impose on other people a way of thinking and a way of living that is completely contrary to everything the United States of America has ever stood for. So we need to keep in mind what our goals are and how complicated this world is that we’re operating in,” Kerry stated.
Of course, some readers, especially those who are affiliated with the liberty, anarchist, or other politically affiliated online movement, will probably find Kerry’s words to be ironic considering many people have discovered that they have been blindly following a corrupted way of this country and would have never realized so if it weren’t for the Internet.

Fishman For Senate Launches

Fishman For Senate Launches


Beverly, MA

Libertarian Daniel Fishman, who garnered over 16,000 votes in the 6th Congressional District election last fall, has announced his bid to get on the ballot for the Special Election for Senator in Massachusetts.  Upon announcement, Fishman commented on the personal impact of constantly campaigning and the reason behind his resolve to continue.

“Frankly, I understand the reluctance of Scott Brown and Richard Tisei to run in this race.  I too campaigned last summer and fall, and in November was relieved to be done with the rigmarole of politics.  And I was also working an 8-6 job at the same time.”

“But the thing I became most aware of on the campaign trail is that there is a large group of citizens in Massachusetts who are not being represented by the Democratic machine, which elects favored sons time after time; nor are they represented by the Republican Party which is tied to a national platform of social intolerance since 1950.”

“I am the most fiscally conservative and the most socially tolerant candidate in the race. There is an understanding in Massachusetts that the federal government has become a tool of corporations to protect corporate interests, in that so called ‘regulations’ on corporations often serve interests to the detriment of the People.”

“Government bailed out the banks, limited BP’s liability and wasted half a billion dollars trying to force the People to accept the government’s choice for solar implementation with financially disastrous results.  The government is not protecting the people from corporations — usually the opposite is true.”

“Abraham Lincoln exhorted us in the Gettysburg Address ‘…we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain.  That this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the People, by the People, for the People, shall not perish from the earth.’  We currently do not have a government of the People, nor sadly is it a government for the People; but it can be, and it’s my goal to do that if I become a Senator.”
