This book reveals the history of information processes and the mass-media aberration. By industrializing information, maas media transformed each of us into neoliberals, from left to right, from democrat to republicans, from socialists to capitalists. And now, we're left in a world of imbalance, violence, injustice where both prosperity and freedom go bankrupt. The author shows other avenues and invites us to be more socially busy and develop a social economy with social businesses. The new media and technology will help transforming this world provided we can guarantee our access to knowledge. Science and information are no longer abel to fight against darkness. We need to change this. It requires vision and political courage.
Concrete examples in this book show how confidence, mutual respect and exchange are the most promising avenues. New media could help provided our knowledge can be protected by a kind of worldwide public intelligence.
