Dancin_In_Anson: I fail to see the problem here Johnny Boy.


The problem isn't that people are more informed. It's that many of them are more infromed.

DamnYankees: Did no one read TFA and realize he said this in a positive way? He thinks its a good thing.


I don't think he was explicitly saying it was a good or bad thing, but that this is the world we live in now. His statements before the quoted stuff from the article were:

We are making a difference every day in the relationships between countries, the relationship between peoples, and the aspirations and opportunities that people will have somewhere in the world. That's a great adventure. It's also a well-spent life. It's a way to do things where you can say there's a real reward to risk factor, and you know you're contributing to something bigger than yourself. We are dealing in the most complicated world ever, and I mean ever.

This meeting was with staff and their families at the embassy in Brazil, and he was thanking them for their work and dedication in an ever-more-complicated world. Recognizing what makes it complicated doesn't have to be tinged with personal opinions.

But yea, anyone thinking he's cursing the internet is wrong.

This is clearly commentary on the ability of governments to "control the narrative"; as in it makes his job harder.  I'd say his perspective is neutral, if accurate as well.

Great use of the ellipsis there by CNS. Classic.

"and that is complicated by a rise of sectarianism and religious extremism that is prepared to employ violent means to impose on other people a way of thinking and a way of living that is completely contrary to everything the United States of America has ever stood for.

But enough about the Teabaggers.
