The only problem is: they are already doing it. Without "our permission". And nobody is doing anything concrete to stop them. And it's possible that there *isn't* anything concrete that can be done to stop them on their tracks (although we can diminish their momentum with the judicious applying of cryptography and security conscience)...
Kenya's official languages are English and Swahili.

Does anyone else see the ridicule of this attempt? People on the banned countries that really want to continue their courses will use proxies and other technological measures to bypass it?
Is this evidence of time travel?
Anyway, TNW's article reveals some read comprehension error (on everyone's part?); according to Ramaswamy's email, “We are working in the payments team to figure out how to incorporate bitcoin into our plans” but TNW interprets this as "it would suggest Google was getting ready to support the virtual currency". NO. It suggests that Google is thinking about how it could possibly do that.
Assuming you are right, and THEY exist: As long as none of us peek behind the curtain, we'll never be capable of doing that. Even after we remove the puppetmasters, I am fairly certain new, improved puppetmasters will show up. (obviously, if you are wrong and there is no THEM, changing puppets does change things) (or at least create the conditions for changing things) The truth, IMNSHO, is that the will to get to power usually generates power, and no people have more will to have power over others than psychopats/sociopaths, and so those naturally drawn to power. Non-empathically-challenged people have to put safeguards in the social fabric and system just to be protected from the empathically-challenged people that will undoubtedly rise to power.

Still an enormous difference...
AOL was the *USofAn* internet... (maybe half of it, really)
Maybe two of my 200 fbfriends have sock puppet accounts. Unless you relate to a lot of strange people on fb, I think you are an exception to the rule.
AOL at its peak had a million users? five million? 0.1% of the world population? Compare to the 15% that FB has...
No, because politicians and diapers ought to be changed frequently, and for the same reasons.
You got it the wrong way around.
Actually, it's more probable that your bank created them, with the blessing from the government.
