In this TED talk James Corbett lauds the power of the Internet as a political tool that can keep us informed and connected. He is right in thinking that ‘many to many’ character of Internet communication as opposed to the ‘one to many’ character of traditional media gives us the power to find truth and to organise but while the Internet does make the dictum ‘seek and ye shall find’ more of a reality, seeking is a choice and a lot of resources are being used to prevent us seeking or to manipulate what we seek and see.

While there is nothing novel in the talk but Corbett’s work is worth highlighting. He is a 9/11 dissenter and was responsible for this gem about the absurdities in the official narrative about 9/11:

Corbett is part of a network of bloggers/independent journalists who offer an alternative to the worldview that is powerfully pushed by the mainstream media and the mainstream political structure in the west.
