Yes, it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve been working on the paper for submission with my graduate program application as an academic writing sample.
In this paper, I examine the shift in information authority in our society, observing that all the traditional sources of information, i.e. news, academia, and government agencies, are under attack, and that the Internet is likely to do little better, essentially rehashing information from the other sources. I illustrate that the attack on academia as elitist is a distraction from a much more real class war being waged against everyone who is not in power.
It is a much more massive paper than I intended for the purpose of a graduate program application; and now I can only worry and wait.
