The Freedom Infection
“Countries that have the Internet already are not going to turn it off. And so, the power of freedom, the power of ideas will spread, and it will change those societies in very dramatic ways. North Korea is the last stop; it’s the one country that’s never had the Internet, where it’s been blocked, in my view, very harshly by the government. All they have to do is turn it on a little bit, and they can’t turn it back. Once the ideas are in, you cannot kick them out.”
—Eric Schmidt, Google executive chairman and coauthor with Jared Cohen of The New Digital Age: Reshaping the Future of People, Nations and Business, 2013 (Listen: “Google Execs Say, ‘The Power of the Internet is Underrated,” National Public Radio, April 23, 2013)
