The Geo-Social Contract

September 6, 2010

From Wikipedia:

The notion of the social contract implies that the people give up sovereignty to a government or other authority in order to receive or maintain social order through the rule of law. It can also be thought of as an agreement by the governed on a set of rules by which they are governed.

Hasn’t the internet permanently disrupted the notion of the geo-social contract by reconfiguration and rerouting of the lines of communication?
