Information itself may come to be devalued by the phenomenon of the sheer quantity produced in this modern era of electronic media. It is blatantly obvious that today’s users of the internet are engulfed by torrents upon torrents of information, much of which is never assessed for its accuracy or credibility. From political news to geo-spatial developments respecting human conflicts, from technological trends to keeping up with the memes and friends on Facebook, our minds are exceedingly challenged to make coherent sense of all this content. This is understandable, for not only do the massive quantities of information pose an insurmountable problem in simply consuming the troves of data, but humans are lacking the time to even start a search of potentially discrediting information respecting any given notion that splays itself on the luminescent screen.

Understand that you are not separate from the ecology of life. As with any eco-system, if one species gains too much advantage over the others, it will spread ruthlessly, consuming resources in its wake that degrades the capacity of other species to thrive. There is a balance, and this ecological balance has nuances in the affairs of ge0-politics. Peace and war are on a fulcrum. We must foster growth and peace more than death and decay.
