As per the trend we see, any type of system in this world, ultimately gets corrupted. Leading to a final particular state, where power remains on top and rest on the bottom. No matter it's religious system, money system, government system, religious system, media ( news paper, television ), or any system that can be thought of.
A very common pattern in the origin of all these systems, is that they start from being virtuous. They help people a lot, they are like a life savior. Then gradually, people become used to it. They are blindly followed. The people controlling the system get powerful and powerful. The whistle blowers get weaker and weaker, and most of them are eliminated. The people are offered addiction, so that number of followers can be maintained and controlled. Everything is engulfed by the system.
So, with this pattern in mind, is it the case, internet too, that today not only seems to be very virtuous, has also entered in every smallest activity of our lives ( unlike tv and newspaper, that still were limited to bedroom and morning time ), would become one of the biggest tool to control the people. And this time, there is not going to be any escape.
- what philosophers have said that the internet has or had a positive potential, but has or is becoming something which is negatively affecting us?
