Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg says “Global superstructure” needed to advance humanity under totalitarian control
How do you go from a nerd who developed a popular social media website to master decider of the universe and the future of Humankind? Easy: You turn that social media site creation into a multi-billion dollar platform and presto, instant credibility.
To my knowledge, Facebook founder and Harvard dropout Mark Zuckerburg doesn’t have any advanced training or education in sociology and government. But because his social media site is the world’s biggest, he does have incalculable terabytes’ worth of personal data from 1.8-plus billion active users. And he obviously believes that qualifies him to plan the future of the planet.
In a piece from New York Magazine headlined, “Can Facebook Fix It’s Own Worst Bug?” Zuckerberg says he believes that the world needs a “global superstructure to advance humanity,” and that he feels qualified to help make that happen. And, of course, Facebook is the vehicle for that.
“Mark Zuckerberg now acknowledges the dangerous side of the social revolution he helped start,” writes author Farhad Manjoo. “But is the most powerful tool for connection in human history capable of adapting to the world it created?”
As reported by Breitbart News, Manjoo met with Zuckerberg to talk about his social media creation and the range of issues facing the company. During the conversation, Zuckerberg claimed there was a need to develop the social infrastructure necessary for humanity to “get to the next level.”
“There’s a social infrastructure that needs to get built for modern problems in order for humanity to get to the next level,” Zuckerberg said. “Having more people oriented not just toward short-term things but toward building the long-term social infrastructure that needs to get built across all these things in order to enable people to come together is going to be a really important thing over the next decades.”
