About 5 pages of Discourse Paper with lots of notes to self

Weinberger, David

The more information we have to draw from and the more people we have to do so, the more defined that silhouette becomes and the closer we are to an answer. The United States is over three-hundred, million people strong. Our numbers and our access to such vast amounts of information mean we have the ability to close in on the truth our leaders fail to share with us better than we ever have before. Discovering this information defines our community of leaders to us, ultimately forcing them to change to our will. It is our duty as Americans, as citizens of the world, not to accept the lies governments feed us because we now have the ability to uncover the truth using the unlimited supply of information on the web.

Even before the Internet, we have had enough information to understand the Universe; it is just a matter gathering the means to translate that information into our way of understanding. We can assume translating the information of the entire Universe can happen, but in doing so, one logical problem faces those who see the last bits of information to be filed away. People will have to come to terms with the necessity to rely on recording all that information. All the information of the Universe must be too vast to fit within the confines of the Human brain or maybe there is one escort in Everett small bit of knowledge that encompasses all the rest.

The Internet began as a way to transfer data quickly from research facility to research facility but has evolved into a living, breathing environment in which many niches of people and ideas thrive. As social creatures working with this entity of the web, we have created communities bound not by vicinity but by adherence to ideas and practices. Distance has little impact on the functionality of all the virtual communities we subscribe to yet the qualifications needed to join such communities rely on a broad spectrum. Anyone with Internet access can participate in these public conversations, share tips, and set up meetings with people who share any level of interest in said examples.

On the low end, we see communities whose discourse allows for anyone with a fleeting fancy to learn a little more about something like, for example, quilting or woodworking

The opposite end of the spectrum is limited, selective, often powerful and secretive. The Ku Klux Klan, the Freemasons, and the fabled Illuminati all fall towards this side of the spectrum because of their secret meetings and limited, if not entirely unavailable, information supplied on the web. They are considered at least secretive and private discourse communities but some are beyond private and can be called clandestine. For Americans, the Executive branch of our government has all the qualities of this publicly limited side of the spectrum. This essay will in part look at some very improbable reasons for or causes of certain recent events such as the Iraq war or 9/11 and it should be understood that I am aware of how improbable they are.

These reasons are described for illustrative purposes as well as for helping people remember that governments everywhere have the capability to lie and destroy evidence(maybe I could weave that into the thesis) I’m thinking a thesis will go here but I don’t entirely know what it is yet. The common denominator between discourse communities (aside from having a discourse and being a community) is information. The amount of information available to the public is indicative of the three things: how large, how popular and how selective or secretive the community is. All the polls show how unpopular President Bush, Vice President Cheney and their administration is (ask about this one). We accept the fact that presidential administrations must be small, relative to the entire U.
