Comment History repeats itself? (Score 1) 124

At any point in time, where there are at least 2 competing powers (different ideologies, competing for economic superiority etc), there will inevitably be tensions, and they will 'fight it out', in a sense. In the past we have had the competition between European countries in the age of colonization, the two world wars, the cold war; and now competing for domination on the internet. Same fight, different medium. It remains to be seen who will gain temporary victory this time round, but the earth will continue spinning.

However I do understand the need for sites to generate add money, so I actually whitelist some ads on websites I support (generally only with non-intrusive, text ads. Just my two cents.
