The Internet is a Wilderness

The internet is a wilderness. A wilderness is a beautiful thing, and it offers resources to those who know it: water, game, berries, pathways. But those who don’t know it can get lost and perish or go mad. The internet is a dangerous place for ignorant people.

People who have no system for sorting probability from improbability, unable to recognize reputable sources of information from the porous, dishonest ones…they get lost in that wilderness. They think Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya; they think that the New World Order built the Denver airport; they think that we didn’t really land on the moon and “creation science” proves evolution is a myth.

It’s all on the internet.
