Virie - Guaranteeing Freedom of Communication in the World

The debate on freedom of communication started way back in the 1950s when electronic communications such as mass media, radio, and television started to emerge. As they became instrumental as a decisive factor during the World War II, drawn on signals theory and concerned with signals processing and the flow of information, there had been a political problematic area of control versus the free flow of communication. Those in command of the political systems needed to control information, thereby controlling the freedom of communication so that, they could ensure that their lines of command were effective and that they had control over their economies. This was clearly reflected in the Communications Policy implemented by the command economy governments.

It was only later, in the 1960s to be precise, that the concept of the right to communicate came into the surface as built on cultural studies and semiotics. While this is the case, the political problem of power and control continued to manifest. The most impact was on those who are from developing countries. To this day, the challenge continues keeping those poorest rural communities whose access to electricity is scarce and modern communication tools are hard to afford due to centralization where authorities control communications accesses with a fee. The real interests of these people are marginalized, thereby making those in poverty remain in poverty. Without the freedom of communication, they cannot connect to the world where opportunities that can help them get out of poverty are waiting for them. In a nutshell, in today’s economic communication systems, the poor remain poorer, while the rich become richer.

To make it possible for everyone to improve their economy, it is vital to have the freedom of communication between parties. It should be accessible and affordable even to those in developing countries. Anybody who wants to buy and sell anything should be able to directly communicate with each other without a fee regardless of their location. It is also important that all communications and transactions are protected and secured, eliminating any possibility of being hacked or altered. Any ordinary person who does not have to be a technology expert should have access to such freedom with no one controlling them. All these can be achieved through Virie Market.

Virie Market is a true form of a free market. It is a decentralized virtual marketplace that follows a peer-to-peer network system. This means that all participants, regardless of their economic status, and even if they are less technical, can freely communicate with each other. It uses modern cryptography and blockchain technology to protect the transactions and communications within the platform. There are no governments or institutions that control it, which means that the users are free to control their own economy. The Virie Market can be a possible way for people all over the world to have equal rights and opportunities for a better global economy.
