"Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather."

I'm thinking that given the move towards digitally equipped societies, our accessibility to civic participation seems just as important as our ability to [insert other life admin examples]. FWIW I'm interested in this discussion, not trying to sway or troll. I understand both perspectives, and don't need to be convinced either way.
