‘There are some things that money can’t buy…
…for everything else, there is MasterCard‘
Well, this quot of MasterCard on its website seems a little ironic in this moment of the ‘1st Information Technology World War‘ in fighting for transparency from governments.
Mastercard, Visa, Moneybookers, PayPal, transfer money from gambling, porn, etc, but block transparency and freedom of information. It means that for those things, gambling, porn, etc, ‘there is MasterCards‘.
I remember the bureaucratic procedure that MoneyBookers asked me to put a donation button for our social works of Don Bosco in Cambodia. They were asking that our Non-For-Profit and humanitarian organization must provide a ‘business license‘!
In this moment, it is evident the ambitious, selfish and vain face of those corporations.
Now well, it’s time to develop alternative systems to protect rights like information, development, etc. Open sources, Commons, Google, Facebook, could develop alternatives to put information on the hands of the peoples. The democracy of IT.
Let’s think in the development of new, modern and humanitarian financial systems that would be protected from the caprice of governments and ambitious powers, those enemies of true, freedom and real democracies. Systems that correspond in soul to our technological revolution.
