nice quote and comment

"All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others".-animal farm

Animal Farm is an allegorical and dystopian novella by George Orwell, first published in England on 17 August 1945. According to Orwell, the book reflects events leading up to the Russian Revolution of 1917 and then on into the Stalinist era of the Soviet Union.[1] Orwell, a democratic socialist,[2] was a critic of Joseph Stalin and hostile to Moscow-directed Stalinism, an attitude that was critically shaped by his experiences during the Spanish Civil War.[3] The Soviet Union, he believed, had become a brutal dictatorship, built upon a cult of personality and enforced by a reign of terror. In a letter to Yvonne Davet, Orwell described Animal Farm as a satirical tale against Stalin ("un conte satirique contre Staline"),[4] and in his essay "Why I Write" (1946), wrote that Animal Farm was the first book in which he tried, with full consciousness of what he was doing, "to fuse political purpose and artistic purpose into one whole".-wiki source link

We can say that ALL VOTES ARE EQUAL BUT SOME VOTES ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.   The vote of the owner of a media empire, by virtue of its ability to influence millions or tens of millions, is worth more than the single vote of a random individual who only influences a few individuals in their social sphere.

Now a machine able to distort all forms of information from all sources physical or 'virtual', such a machine would have single vote able to trump all other votes even if all other votes were combined... the very law itself would no longer apply as it would be the embodiment of the law.
