When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

"As described in the pages that follow, diasporic communities around the world affect the internal politics and external policy positions of their homelands through e-mails and Web sites.

The rapid transmission of news directly from the source allows world players to bypass formal diplomatic channels, requires quicker and perhaps less considered responses by government officials, and enables NGOs to express and impress their positions more widely.

Something is different: the emergence, significance, and importance of the network structure within a world of complexity.

The “life form” and organizational structure that is most in evidence in this new world of ideas and media is the network - social networks, electronic networks, media networks, to name a few.

The United States has declared war on a network.

This has all the appearances of being a new era for the conduct of world affairs as it is for other sectors of the economy and global polity."
