"The constant free flow of communications among us - enabling the free interchange of ideas - forms the very bloodstream of our nation.  It keeps the mind and body of our democracy eternally viral, eternally young. "

Franklin Delano Roosevelt 

(FDR was a great communicator in the days of Radio (e.g, fireside chats in the AM radio band).  I can imagine him  broadcasting his ideas, nowadays, in cyberspace/social media ?  CyberPeaceGadfly)

FDR is a peculiar leadership figure at all times. Besides,his dexterity as of that glorious and remarkable times was unimaginable.Can we imagine how the Mass Media as of that time, though analogue could be very instrumental to democratic stability as evident in the leadership of FDR?Can we imagine how a digitalized Mass Media of today has sig nificantly gained currency?Can we imagine how ideas, knowledge can flow on cyber space/social media?Can we imagine if FDR like minded individuals can take a moment to use their personal cyber power(PCP) across cyber space to cause a tsunamis with their fingers on smartphone,laptop,tablet desktop etc,?
I guess our humanity will remain incomplete if we ignorantly or deliberately render the cyber space docile with the myriad of challenges to our humanity.The rise to this moral responsibility/obligation should form the very bloodstream of our humanity.
