The dismissal of blogs as illegitimate authorities and their authors as charlatans is a cry from the throes of a dying elite, the L'Ordre blog reports.
A digital equivalent of the Protestant Reformation is almost beginning to take place, the blog - based at leading website on religious issues, Beliefnet - suggests. The blog goes on to encourage the formation of societies and networks of solidarity between bloggers, citing the Mont Order as an example of such a project:
If single bloggers can form a chorus enough to prevent wars or encourage social and political change merely by recognizing a shared truth, it is clear that greater coordination between them would only increase this capability. Thus the idea of collectives, affiliations or clubs of bloggers is a potent idea. I am trying to help exactly such a clan in the form of the Mont Order, for whom I intend to set up and promote a shared blog to popularize as a new kind of dissident society.lordre.net domain on Sunday.

The L'Ordre blog praises this comparison, arguing further that the crossroads of radicalism and technology will bring positive social change. "Thanks to ubiquitous technology, many people have gone from voiceless to wielding a disproportionate ability to lobby world opinion", the blog observes.
