Al Gore may have invented it, but John Kerry dislikes the internet ...


Because citizens having access to lots of information makes it difficult to govern, apparently:

“Well, folks,” he said, “ever since the end of the Cold War, forces have been unleashed that were tamped down for centuries by dictators, and that was complicated further by this little thing called the internet and the ability of people everywhere to communicate instantaneously and to have more information coming at them in one day than most people can process in months or a year. 
“It makes it much harder to govern, makes it much harder to organize people, much harder to find the common interest,” said Kerry.
And here you thought having an informed opinion was just your civic duty.

You evil twit.
