I've been a lurker for a couple weeks, and decdided it was past due for me to start throwing in my 2 cents -- for whatever they are worth..
I want the truth to come out about our world/civilization/species/institutions as much as everyone here; I just worry that we'll get stuck in the
quagmire of 'hovering over our laptops tossing around ideas'.. I"m all for debate, discussion, sharing, etc., but I wonder: what's the next step?
where does this lead us? what kind of action can all of us agree upon in terms of really taking action? how can we reach more people in a peaceful
way? or is there no peaceful way?
it's obvious that the media is bought and paid for, and penetrating them seems an impossibility; yes, of course, we can all turn off the 'tube';
that's a good start; we can also take radical steps to get out of debt (the best we can anyway), get off the energy grid (when it's possible),
inform friends and family (at the risk of ridicule), be rational with the resources we use (which, in most cases, takes major life changes), do our
best to stay healthy, fit, and sharp, keep digging, sharing, etc.... but...
...will it be enough? is there really any way to ignite real change in our world? or are we just playing an intellectual game?
so many predictions don't come true, so many well-intentioned people on the same 'side' of the fight tend to fight amongst themselves (the recent
and unfortunate arguement between Alex Jones and Peter Joseph comes to mind), so many times we try to speak truth to power and are shot down by the
entropy of the mass ignorance -- all these things tend to undermine the progress we are trying to make as a movement..
.. perhaps it's time to ramp things up a bit, although I'm not sure what form that action should take; I look forward to hearing more ideas...
It's good to be aboard..
