Anyway, continuing on, we need to come up with something to overpower the freight train coming our way. Some of you at this moment maybe are thinking we should grab our guns and take to the streets. No, thats exactly what they wish you would do. They are pretty much treating us like we are a lion in a cage and they are pokin us with a stick, trying to provoke us so that they will have "just cause" to put us to sleep. Look at some of the stuff you`ve seen over the past 5-10yrs... There`s been a lot of stuff that seems to be trying to get us to react. Tryin to make a few of us snap and go all "mcveigh" or "unibomber" so then theres enough of a threat for "homegrown" terrorists to be able to consider it necessary for our police to be militarized and much more.
So we dont take to the streets? No.
Ok so we just go on like normal so we dont fall into their trap? Not exactly. See, if we can "awaken" enough people under some type of a leadership (the leadership will be necessary in order to keep all these newly awakened people from doing what their first reaction may be and "taking to the streets") then no matter what little scheme they try to pull, we will see through it. The problem right now is that too many people are still "living in the matrix" and we who think for ourselves are too much of a minority. If some of us seriously start putting some REAL effort into this, we may have a chance to wake up enough people to make a difference. How do we make a difference? We can get together and talk about that, its too much of a question for one man to answer but my ideas have something to do with ignoring the gov, growing & raising our own food, and for the first time in a long time...START TAKING CARE OF EACHOTHER AS LOVING HUMANS SHOULD! There`s a lot to build on there, and keep in mind: your neighb ors are most likely no worse than you are, morally. The elitists want us to be afraid, be very afraid of our neighbors. They might do drugs or they might be a pedophile! BUT standing around pointing fingers isnt getting us anywhere... except exactly where they want us...divided and conquored.(sp) So anyway, you can work on strengthening your community, and you can spread the info to wake people up. Just dont count on the net to help you, it could get shut off... so I would be copyin & pastin as much good info as you can. And even electricity could go out so...but even if it didnt, the smartest thing to do would be to make some copies... then, distribute! ...be creative... :^) I always thought it would be cool if someone made a "coffee table book that would be a compilation of their fav threads...

Now I do agree, that the Media does overhype things. Like let's say a celberties running away from the police, and they're filming it on camera. Or a famous pop icon dies, and that's all they talk about.
And even quiet small towns are not immune to the violence in todays world. Just remember how in the isolated Quaker town the boy that walked into the school and opened fire and killed a dozen or so girls.
The world is full of wickedness...

Without question, mainstream media over does some stories. To an extent of them being boarder-line ridiculous in some instances. However, I believe that there is a personal responsibility to look beyond the headline and judge the integrity and purpose of the story for yourself. Yes, it is easy to get swept along with sensationalism, but the internet allows us to question things like never before and form opinions true to your own set of morals and values.
