In case we thought the Socialist Utopian was a dead breed…

Mark Zuckerberg’s plan to save the world: Facebook founder reveals his vision to ‘bring us together in a global community’ in 5,500 word manifesto

I haven’t attempted to read the “manifesto,” – or even seen it, there’s no link at the article – but from the hints given it appears that Socialist Utopians may have billions of dollars to play with and lots of grandiosity but they’re a bit shaky on “sense of history.” IOW, this one hasn’t learned anything since H. G. Wells took his shot at it over a century ago.

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    I went and looked at his “Facebook manifesto” and I have to say that I don’t want any part of being in “the collective.” That’s exactly what I see his long term goal being, a global collectivist society run by a select few with the “assistance” of AI’s and eventually the AI’s running things. All for the betterment of our lives

    “To prevent harm, we can build social infrastructure to help our community identify
    problems before they happen.”

    This has to be one of the most frightening sentences i have ever seen someone write. It’s not so much the dictators who run things for their own benefit it’s the do-gooders who want to impose their vision of utopia on the rest of us. Sadly there will be those who will think this is a good thing and jump on the band wagon. Personally it just ain’t for me.

    Sadly it appears that his Harvard socialist pedigree has finally surfaced.

    Same ol’ same ol’ once again.

    “We’re so much smarter than the rest of you that it’s just common sense for us to be in charge!”

    However they say it, this is what they mean . . . and it basically cost the Dems an election. We’re not as stupid as they think we are.

    Dear Mark,

    It is YOUR Utopia, but ultimately it must become coercive.
    If for no other reason than by the subversion of the human spirit.

    Not my vision of a happy place.
    I’m not nor will I be of your herd.
    Get off my small parcel of turf.

    If I change my mind I’ll give you a call.
    Don’t hold your breath.

    Respectfully,
    I, Not your property

To the stake with the heretic!
