Bork writes that the Internet is “on its way to being a non-entity” that “has no authority, no value, and no relevance.”
Bork goes on to describe how the Internet, as we know it today, has been “destroyed” by the rise of online corporations, “large-scale, multibillion-dollar corporations whose sole objective is to make money for themselves.”
He writes: “There is no longer any way to communicate with others; there is no reason for anyone to communicate at all.
We are all trapped in an echo chamber of digital silence.”
The Internet is a product of history, Bork says.
It is not a product that can be fixed by changing technology or changing policy.
He points to the evolution of the automobile industry: “If it had never been invented, if the cars hadn’t been invented by car manufacturers, then the automobile would not have existed in the first place.
That means that in the future, the Internet will become irrelevant. “
But now, because of the Internet and the Internet of Things, the cars are making more choices every day, and those choices are increasingly determined by technology.
That means that in the future, the Internet will become irrelevant.
And so the Internet must be shut down.”
Borrowing from his own experiences, Bison writes that “we have been left behind.”
As he describes how this has been happening in the United States, Borrows the following metaphor: “You’re sitting at home, surrounded by your family, the TV on, and you have a computer that you are using to do a lot of things.
You’re watching TV, but you’re not really thinking about it, you’re just using the computer.
You could sit at home and do all the things that the computer allows you to do, but now you are left alone.
That’s what is happening to the Internet.
It’s not a new technology; it’s just one that we have been told is different.
But it’s the same old problem.”
Bison continues: “We have been led to believe that we are in control of the future.
We have been given permission to control the past, to control how things are, to make decisions based on data that we control.
We do not.
We can control how we are used to living our lives, but we can’t control the way we are being used to live our lives.
And that is why we are losing the Internet.”
The rise of new digital platforms, Babbitt notes, has created a new form of tyranny, which is not only destroying freedom but is creating an era of “intolerance and a chilling effect of fear in our society.”
In a blog post, Beadle writes that digital platforms have made it impossible to “create meaningful connections with friends and family, to create meaningful relationships, to be able to work and pursue meaningful careers, to build new friendships and strengthen our communities, and to live in communities that are welcoming and supportive.”
He concludes: “It’s time to shut down the Internet for good.
The Internet needs to be shut for good.”
Borrowing the phrase “the Internet has become a nonentity,” Bork points to a number of instances in which the Internet itself has become “non-existent” and replaced with “no longer relevant.”
The term “digital nonentity” is used to describe a “nonentity” whose only value is in the minds of its owners and users.
Bork describes how “digital” has been a term of disdain for the Internet since the early 2000s: “The Internet was created by a handful of people, and it is the Internet we have.
The first people who used the Internet were programmers and engineers.
Bizarro Internet Bork notes that “the internet has always been the Internet: It is an abstract, invisible entity. “
And it was only the Internet that finally put an end to the totalitarian control that we had been experiencing for decades, a totalitarian control of a very large percentage of the population, the way in which people were being controlled by corporations and the big money interests.”
Bizarro Internet Bork notes that “the internet has always been the Internet: It is an abstract, invisible entity.
But digital nonentity is a new concept, a new way of thinking, a totally new way to look at the Internet” that is “designed to silence people, to silence criticism, to destroy freedom, to render the Internet invisible.”
The Bork book, Digital Nonentity, was published in 2017.
Bizaro’s book has been praised for its strong defense of the right of free expression and for its criticism of the current state of the Web.
A new “free” and “free-wheeling” Internet Babbatt notes that the idea of “the web as a free, open platform” is not new, but that it has been largely ignored in the recent history of the digital space. Babb
