In our world today there are monumental and exponential changes occurring. These changes are happening not just in the local, international, and global arenas, but even within ourselves. Looking at ourselves, our governments, our societies, humanity, and the world in general, many questions and concerns may come to mind. Let us explore these, and discuss our responsibilities and the necessary actions that will help guide us into our future. It is important to look beyond isolationism or globalization. There are many different contributing factors to our immediate surroundings, the cultures we live in, and the changing situations that all humanity shares. And there are also many different forms of cause and effect at work. We must examine all of humanity, from the various cultures and subcultures that exist to our individual selves. The purpose of this book is to have you ask a variety of engaging questions, both of yourself and about the world around you. I want to help you explore these deep questions so you can find answers that will ultimately help you survive the intense upheavals of today.
These days, everyone wants their fifteen minutes of fame. Brian Weathers doesn’t. He’s a novelist and he’s actually quite successful. The thing is, he doesn’t want to become famous at all. In fact, he’s only told six people he’s got books published. So what’s going to happen when a photo threatens to out him to the world? However will he cope?

A must read book to understand current events.
Arthur White takes us through the mechanisms of propaganda and indoctrination from the past and used in today’s social media. Sometimes reality is far more terrifying than fiction.
Arthur White gives a daring look to how freedom is stripped away. A society indoctrinated since birth, a world of fashionable morals.
Arthur White guides us through the tools used in everyday life to deceive mankind, divide and keep people in an invisible prison.
The magic trick is not stripping away free will from society. The real magic trick is doing it in a way that people willingly surrender free will and they do it with a big smile.

Regardless of the question, the Internet is the answer.
We are told that the Internet and the market are the solution to every kind of problem. But is it true? Will Big Data help us to understand the world? Is the Internet really on the side of democracy? Does it make sense to make gamify everything? Is the Internet (still) the Frontier? Or is that era past us and we are now faced with the greatest concentration of economic power of all time?
It seemed perfectly normal to Jeff Jarvis, a famous American journalist, to ask: “What Would Google Do?” if the company based in Mountain View were put in charge of the public sector.
It apparently didn’t occur to him that the rules and goals the public sector lives by are, or at least should be, different from those of a private company.
According to many, the Internet, this jumble of servers and communication protocols, is the greatest invention ever. But is it really so? And wasn’t the same thing said of inventions such as the telegraph, the radio, movie pictures, television or nuclear energy?
Today the Internet is winning. To the point that it seems natural that it should win. But is it so? Does the Internet have to win? Is the Internet’s impact positive for society?
Perhaps it’s time to clear our minds and talk about the Ideology of the Internet.
We will speak about…
Internet of Things
