Another One Bites The Dust

The world is changing.

Print media is going the way of the dinosaur. Digital media is where it’s at.

Newsweek, once one of the premier news magazines (and government propaganda arms) announced yesterday it would cease its print operation as of Dec. 31. It will continue in an all-digital format in 2013. Newspapers across the country are ending or reducing their print operations and focusing on digital.

The Internet is to the current communications environment as the Gutenberg press was in the mid-1400s. The Gutenberg press was the first to use moveable type. It was essentially the printing standard for the next 500-plus years. Johannes Gutenberg’s invention led directly to the development of the Renaissance, Reformation, the Age of Enlightenment and the Scientific Revolution. Knowledge, long held close to the vest by the elites, became available to the commoners.

For the past 100-plus years, the elites have controlled the mainstream media. The Internet has changed that. Now anyone can publish his message. Information (and disinformation) is available to everyone with an Internet connection.

The elites hate that they no longer control the message. They will continue their efforts to control the Internet through regulation and censorship. These efforts must be resisted at all cost.
