Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Couldn't agree more, especially:

melo: if the internet survives, we can de-parochialise rural life, and democratise knowledge, removing the stigma of ignorance and backwardness traditionally benighting those whose geography was removed from the loci of centralised cultural events and ideas.

first we need to decentralise the energy supplies, and remove electric bills from households, freeing up much money that way.

As Migeru once put it about a different but related prospect:

One can always hope...

The point is not to be right, but to get to right.
