Power and Information in Egypt -- and Beyond

The Huffington Post published an article written by Joseph Nye on February 9, 2011.

“The problem for all states in today’s global information age is that more things are happening outside the control of even the most powerful governments,” said Nye. “In an information-based world, power diffusion is a more difficult problem to manage than power transition.”

According to Nye, the Internet has empowered a wide range of actors. Nye went on to say that America was having a hard time dealing with these actors.


Bow down. Bow down.
