Why Software code is the crucial component of everything in the 21st century

Software is what the 21st century is made of

What steel was to the economy of the 20 th century
What steel was to the power of the 20 th century
What steel was to the politics of the 20 th century
Software is now
It is the curial building block
the component out of which everything else is made

and when I speak of everything - I mean of course:
FREEDOM
as well as Tyranny 
as well as Business as usual
as well as Spying on Everyone for free all the time

In other words the very composition of social life

The way it works or doesn’t work
For US
The way it works or doesn’t work
For those that Own
The way it works or doesn’t work
For those who Oppress  

All now depends on software!

 - Eben Moglen

For better or worse - from here on in
We are all living inside a giant organic SOFTWARE MATRIX

We citizens must either

Seize the software control panel
and demand
 Democratically Distributed Control

OR 

Preside over the collapse of democracy in the information age
