Letter to Zuckerberg
Last night at 9 o’clock I was watching the Militarization of Science and Space, a nicely intellectual speech by Noam Chomsky at Auditorium of Massachusette Institute of Technology. I met a close non-Afghan friend of mine last night discussing with two more Afghan friends, a little bit, on social media and its impacts on mobilizing youths through social media tools and what Afghan friends of mine have been campaigning and doing through Facebook in particular to reach their voices to international community. Chomsky lectured about how economy and tycoons are using military sphere to dominate science and space.
Meanwhile, this idea came to my mind that “how Zuckerberg, as the founder of Facebook, can help Afghans bring a remarkably big social change in Afghanistan; of course I mean peace which is from my point of view Afghans’ current greatest wish?” I came to the conclusion that Zuckerberg can send a daily message expressing his interest in peace-building in the world, particularly in Afghanistan, to all Facebook users. He can build a fan page making everyone on the Facebook a member and mobilizing them to campaign for peace activism. I assume that if he sends all Facebookers a message in daily basis to take a step for peace, then we will be reminded of the importance of peace in the world, and Afghanistan specifically.
If you have any other idea(s), please share it with me to establish a globally effective and useful idea. Or you can share this post on your Facebook account and other social media tools to reach our voices to Zuckerberg. On that time, his attention might be drawn to peace and peace-building, although I am pretty sure that Zuckerberg, as a young man in the US, has already had this idea, but he was looking forward to hearing from the people around the world how they feel if he starts sending only one message per day to all Facebook users.
Maybe it is out of his personal/financial interests, but his name will be shining in the history of humanity and non-violence just like Mahatma Gandhi . Please jot down your ideas, concerns and solutions to get this goal. We need to reach our voices to Zuckerberg that “Mr. Zuckerberg, please us and it is your human responsibility to assist the people of the world to live a more peaceful globe.
