Abstract

The world is witnessing two simultaneous revolutions - the explosion of information in the public domain and the destructive power of information. The possibilities of mind control and impossibilities of suppressing information are going hand-in-hand as Wikileaks and the events in the Arab world illustrate. The nation-State can no longer prevent information from burgeoning. The technicalities of a computerised world are eagerly sought by young minds, unfortunately not always with altruistic intentions as hacking shows. It is an extremely useful tool in the growth and development of the human race which the sum of its contradictions cannot obliterate.
