Excerpt:

Dale Bradley, “Situating Cyberspace”:

“Cyberspace is democracy and vice-versa. It is a solution which bolsters capitalism against the onslaught of its own informational complexity (or, contradictions). Power comes into being as discipline: a distribution of power through every node in the network. Capitalism, democracy, and communism are reduced to strategies for controlling information, the implication being that these social spaces, and the individuals contained therein, are nothing more than information in need of control.” (17)
