“Governments shouldn’t hoard information. The information is there and it belongs to the people,” she says. “Information and the manipulation of information is the key to power. Those who can control the information can influence society enormously. The more accurate the flow of information the more productive we can be.”
By her own logic, governments should hoard information, at least in the traditional sense, to keep it hidden from other national governments. Unless you think every nation in the word should have the same information as every other, then you agree with the general concept here.
And how exactly are governments supposed to not hoard information, keeping it hidden from even their own citizens, if they expect to be able to keep it hidden from other governments as well? I don't see how it's possible. Either the government hoards information and by necessity keeps some hidden from its people, or the government is completely transparent and every country in the world knows everything.
She's advocating an idealist point of view, one that is not tenable, at least not in terms of national security.
I can't fault them for playing, but some of them are failing school and divorcing over this game.
And you have iron-clad proof that these same people wouldn't be failing school or divorcing over something else, were it not for WoW being there?
Can anyone remember when the times were not hard, and money not scarce?
