And others that are not supporters of democratic values are also highly skilled in using the new technology. In terms of effectiveness, al-Queda is arguably the most effective online organization in the world in thier ability to ... (More)

Weegy: I think this can be good or bad. With the internet you have freedom of speech/expression to express, write what you want about. On the other hand, some not so nice stuff can be written on the net as well. (More)
