Brewster Kahle on Government

The government is not one monolithic thing. It’s a bunch of people, thinking they’re doing their jobs.

Brewster Kahle


Yesterday I read a post that started with this line: “**** News is now going after Mr. Rogers.”

I thought the same thing. It isn’t the whole news organization, but some of the people there. We do a disservice to them and ourselves when we vilify the whole organization.

Unfortunately, there is a difference between “doing their jobs” and “thinking they’re doing their jobs.” At least, they are best intentioned.

The more I learn about my own government representatives, the more I like them. Maybe others’ representatives are good, too.

There are some that I’m cynical about, but I would bet that could be improved by spending some time with them. I wonder…
