The Four Noble Truths of Web Realism

With the authority vested in me as a blogger (which is to say: none), I hereby set forth The Four Noble Truths of Web Realism:

(1) Human vanity is neither increased nor decreased by the web, in either kind or extent;

(2) Information is neither more nor less good by virtue of its presence on the web, in terms of its truthfulness, usefulness, originality, beauty, or any other quality;

(3) The web does not involve or produce any change in the volume or quality of human opinions, but only the accessibility of human opinions;

(4) The web does not repeal or alter existing laws, including but not limited to the law of supply and demand.

Feel free to add your own or revise these.
