Three Steps Backward in Berlin
Story Text: 

""After a recent onslaught of attacks on major encyclopedic websites on the Internet, ones reminiscent of the the complete collapse of Wikipedia just two years ago, the University of Berlin has now expressly forbidden any use of internet resources while completing assignments, citing the complete lack of veracity. Students are now required to use resources in the library, such as books, CDs, and DVDs. The use of internet, indeed, has been completely forbidden on campus, in an attempt to prevent any sensitive information about the university from leaking.""This is what I read yesterday morning, as I sat down for my morning coffee. It was not surprising, really. After the complete rubbish I had read recently in my students' papers, it occurred to me that if so many of the students were spouting out the same incorrect information, it could hardly be their fault. Sure enough, when I checked the Encycopaedia Britannica online, the whole place was a complete mess. I wondered why someone would even go through the trouble of changing each one of those entries, but apparently, someone had.To be honest, this announcement was a minor event in my recent life. It's certainly nothing compared to losing all of my family's savings, necessitating the salaries I get paid to be paid in cash. But even cash is hard to come by these days. Banks around the world have been plundered, and it is likely that, in the future, I will be paid in worthless IOUs, promising me my measly sum if we ever get out of this mess. To be blunt, life is awful, especially for us lower-middle class. We, as the human race, need to get off our asses and fight this threat, or we will truly vanish.
