The thought just popped into my head after writing the previous two posts.
Given that most people confuse new ways to sell you things with new technology, can a socialist join in with the capitalistic, pseudo-monopolies of the current internet age?
An anti-capitalist protester with an iPhone? An Android-bearing card carrying communist?
Would it not be better to embrace the new, self-empowering world community of open source technologies and eschew the capitalists attempts to enslave us again?
