Why This Website Is For Everyone On This Planet
It is so that everyone can gain a common understanding of the true nature of the Information Age so that everyone can possess the same economic/social tools so that everyone can have an equal chance to rise to success on the basis of his or her abilities and talents.
America’s greatest President, Abraham Lincoln, said the meaning of America’s national belief system, which is contained within The Declaration of Independence, is this:
“…I have often inquired of myself what great principle or idea it was that kept this Confederacy so long together. It was not the mere matter of the separation of the colonies from the motherland, but that sentiment in the Declaration of Independence which gave liberty, not alone to the people of this country, but hope to all the world, for all future time. It was that which gave promise that in due time the weights would be lifted from the shoulders of all men, and that all should have an equal chance. THIS is the sentiment embodied in the Declaration of Independence.”
The Information Age, based upon the interconnection of computers via telecommunications, is a force that is creating one world, one economic foundation that can provide that equal chance.
If you – regardless of the nation you are from – can learn to understand what the Information Age truly is and how it will grow and develop, then YOU can create a place for yourself within that world to take advantage of economic and social opportunities that open up before you as a means to pursue happiness.
If you don’t understand the nature of the Information Age, you will simply be left behind.
Everyone deserves a fair chance in what will soon become one world. This is YOUR opportunity. Read everything on this website. Check out the resources suggested and read and watch them – and keep an eye out for new knowledge and understanding wherever you may find it.
Learn from what others share on this website about their comprehension of the Information Age.
But, in any case, please understand this very important principle: Knowledge really is power – the power to grow and develop so you can recognize and realize the new opportunities that appear before you to create a world of one's own making..
This website was designed for one person: YOU! And that means each “YOU” on every continent, in every nation, in every city, in every home.
