“There is nothing the governments can do to put the genie back into the bottle”

From Paul Homer’s The Effects of Computers:

The “rich and powerful” are rich and powerful precisely because they have access to information that the rest of us don’t have.

And – once you give people the power to access the information:

“There is nothing the governments can do to put the genie back into the bottle”

Wikileaks related. A good read.
