Trust of the media has dwindled because of the invention of the internet, which is not owned by media barons and corporations or influenced by
government, but has many sources of information. It allows people to see through the MSM lies and half-truths.
People are waking up, I would say people are becoming more aware about issues that were originally twisted by the MSM for their own agenda, and
finding out the truth outside the MSM.
The MSM dominate the majority of radio, dominate the television, and dominate newspapers.
The Internet is the last refuge for those who seek information without TPTB's MSM spoonfeeding and censorship.
We lost the television, we have lost the newspapers, and we have almost lost the radio. The internet is next, because unless it is a medium that is
controlled, it is a threat to TPTB and the MSM. It's that simple. They can't tolerate rivalry to the information you access. They can not tolerate
not controlling what you see and hear.
We already see in countries what is called the intranet. Controlled internet. Dead internet, where what you browse is controlled and regulated by
those in power.
This will be the way of the internet if we are not careful. We see the charging for access for websites, and the crackdown on internet sites.
Here's the thing. The crackdown starts on websites you may not like, so of course the resistance to the initial crackdown may be light. But then the
crackdown widens to other websites, slowly, softly, targetting a particular social group and site at a time.
Now you and I may not like those websites, or maybe we do. But the fact remains the crackdown, the censorship and suffocation of the internet will
rely on people not protesting because "I did not like that site anyway."
First they came for that website, and I did not speak up because I did not go to that website....
Then they came for another website, and I did not speak up because I did not go to that website.
Then they came for our website, and nobody spoke up, because nobody came to that website.
That's how the censorship will work. Creeping. Slowly. Not too fast, don't want to rush things and frighten the horses.
No. Slowly. Like a frog in a frying pan. If you turn up to really hot, the frog will jump out in protest.
But turn that dial slowly, and the frying pan will get warmer and warmer, slowly, and then roast and die.
The Battle for the Internet, and who wins, the people or TPTB, may seal the destiny for humanity.
Sounds dramatic right?
Well, remember that information is power. He who controls the past, controls the present. He who controls the present, controls the future.
The Internet is a beautiful thing. For it's faults, which simply reflects humanity, it's a beautiful thing, just like humanity.
Fight for it. Don't let them have it, I implore you.
Our ancestors of even just 100 years ago would have loved to have had the access to so much free information that we have.
The world is at our fingertips. And TPTB and the MSM are frightened because of it. They want to take it out of our reach, control what we see and hear
and learn and read.
They want us to see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil.
We can't let them win. Too much depends on it.
Everything hinges on who prevails.
