Lately I've been thinking about what I'd like to do in this world or how I could change it. I've also become really disenfranchised by the neo-cynicism of my past. To be honest, as an American, I think Americans are lazy and spoiled. Why should I care about bettering their lives. They've helped themselves... Hell, we'll be speaking Spanish by the time republic-cons have another chance to run this show. If someone wants to start another war, I'll just move, seriously. I'm tempted to anyway once I tidy a few things up. I keep thinking of the ways that technology could help desperate people around the world. One quality we've seen of technology is that each new perspective of it brings new ways to use it. Could you even imagine the power Wikipedia could bring to a remote village?

When presenting this idea to people some have reacted before they conceptualized and said things like "So...they're still stuck in a village."

For the present this may be true. However, future generations have equal academic footing with their global peers...And, these villagers will now have access to the most up-to-date information on farming, irrigation, architecture, medicine and history.

If man can't succeed with that, he doesn't deserve to.
