Authentic - Corrupt Continuum

"Its a rather simple trade-off really, and quite common. Corrupt is less authentic and authentic is less corrupt.

"A good example that is easy to study is sponsored internet vandalism, for lack of a better term. Deception of a certain type is lucrative for a certain class of predatory owners. The objective is deception where the appearance of believable, though fake, personas creates the mass perception of 'grass roots'.

"A countervailing economic opportunity exists wherein accountable individuals are hired to detect and disarm the socially destructive activity just described."

The bad guys create a market for good guys, so-to-speak.

Think of it as technology assisted deputization. Trusted persons are trained, then hired to use online skills to ferret out institutionalized communications abuse on the net. You will be happy to know there are sponsors ready to finance the effort who are waiting for a workable plan to be completed.
