This is a poem I originally wrote on my iPhone on January 21st, 2015 at 7:50 AM. I thought it should have a life online.

Bomb Them With iPhones
Give them WiFi
Give them Netflix
Give them them porn
straight, gay and transgender
Give them the world of the internet
with no filter
Let them see extremists on both sides
and everything in between
Hire 10,000 of the world’s most talented translators and translate it all into the world’s most undeserved languages
Do audio versions of everything for the illiterate
Giant regimes fall because authoritarianism cannot block the water that is culture, media and entertainment.
We end the radicals with comfort and information not with deprivation.
