World News – We do not really know Mark Zuckerberg on a personal level, at least most of us don’t. We base our opinions on movies like The Social Network and what we are told in the media. Rumor is that the CEO of Facebook is forming a political group to address issues such as education reform, immigration and scientific research.
A source for says the group will formally launch in the coming weeks. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the information is not public. Media sources like The San Francisco Chronicle, Politico and others reported on it earlier.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, 28, has already used his wealth to address political issues that are close to heart for him. He donated $100 million of Facebook stock to Newark, N.J., schools.
He also has announced plans to donate nearly $500 million in stock to a Silicon Valley charity to fund health and education issues.
In February he hosted a campaign event in his Palo Alto, Calif., home for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
Politics as we all know revolves around money and with that money comes power and possibly change. On a personal level, I look at where the governments of the USA and other parts of the world, including Costa Rica, have fallen and know that change needs to come soon.
This revolution for change is going to need a huge cash backing to make any of these clowns currently in office to listen.
Let’s hope that this money is used correctly to perhaps reduce the amount of corruption currently involved in so many of the world’s governments and bring hope that each person’s voice is heard again. Where hard work and drive is rewarded and apathy and laziness is punished. Where the idea of “The American Dream” is something that is in the mind of people worldwide.
Will money and social media make this a reality?
