Prime Minister of the ‘Net? Nah, I don’t think I have what it takes. But if you’re planning to run, you might want to take some time to read some of the issues I wish for you to address, as a concerned citizen of the worldwide web:
1. Internet Poverty
What’s poorer than not having friends? For every social networking site, there must be a policy that will require all members to add at least one stranger on their friend’s list every week. A fine must be charged for non-compliance.
2. Internet Traffic
Every device must have its own internet timer that would limit the time that the device spends on the internet to avoid traffic. Plus, there’s real life out there. It’s really getting scary how people don’t talk and see each other anymore. A fine must be charged for non-compliance.
3. Internet Bullying
Report a bully and get 1,000 instant followers. Nowadays people would do anything just to grab the cyber community’s attention. Why not exert some effort in promoting the welfare of your internet peers?
4. Internet Fraud
Thou shall not fake thy year of birth. The whole internet system must be reset, so that only valid accounts may access it. The local government shall issue an internet access id and password to every valid identity. This way, those who wish to do EBs won’t be surprised that the person they’re meeting is way older or younger than expected.
Just these for now… if I happen to have additional ideas and concerns, I’ll let you know.
