When Mark Zuckerberg says that he’s not going to be running for President of the United States, that doesn’t mean you should believe him. Traditionally, ultra-wealthy nerds with a mind for global domination are more suited to the role of cartoon villain than presidential candidate.

As CEO, though, he’s given us insight into his political mindset: Zuckerberg founded Facebook and modelled it around his own ideals. Separating him from the monolith he has created is an impossible task, and a quick look at Facebook's approach to politics and busIness should make all of us worried about the prospect of a President Zuck.

Hopefully, people will NOT, want to live in a World run, like "FaceBook" but in this day and age.............Who Knows? :evil:

"1984" and "The Matrix" rolled into one.



From Article posted:

"It was only “novel” because as far as I can see nobody had been so openly, brazenly unprincipled before. Zuckerberg was actively playing to both sides, regardless of the impact on the world outside. This wasn’t “pro-knowledge”; most people reckon he was trying to reduce his company’s overheads. “This is politics, Facebook-style: pandering as personalised as your Facebook Newsfeed!,” Adrian Chen wrote at Gawker back then. “It’s also about as craven as Washington gets.”
