The Tao exists but it can only be experienced. Anyone who attempts to write or speak of IT is no longer IT. In other words, I have Nothing to say on the matter.

I agree that people have more information choices than ever before, and easier access to many of them, but how accurate are some of those choices.
I've read thousands of stories, mostly lies. It's hard to find truth. I think anarchists are right: thousands of years ago someone (or some group) found out it is better to herd people than to herd cattle. At the moment we all still work for them, their offspring.
Now I see all 'truths' brought by the internet are negative. They win, we loose, and if you think you can win THEIR game you are mistaken.
But 'they' are still afraid of us. You can find dozens of people who tried to help mankind and then got killed. Let's skip Jesus this time. Examples: Dr Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Ghandi, John Lennon, Bob Marley, and M Jackson not so long ago (make sure you find the story BEHIND the 'story'!!)
Most of them taught human values, how to be good, feel good. Most of them were strong people, because believing in yourself and trying to help others makes you stronger.
'They' are VERY afraid of positive people! The fact that we are strong (very!) and powerful (omni!) may not be told....
Now wake yourself up..? So far I failed, I am a working alcoholic, still serving the system.

But I'd like to deal with the "Awake"
People can still be awake and have differing
opinions. The awakened state does not
nullify freewill or choice. So even folks
who are awake may have opposing
opinions and not agree.
I would say that being aware and cautious
is a more descriptive term for the
In the late 60's we saw young people "awakening" to BigGov's promotion of a stupid war and we saw protests and push-back that forced BigGov to get out of Southeast Asia. BigGov feared losing control completely.
Today people are "awakening" and doing nothing except declaring their awakened status. What has changed? I'm not sure that it is the cause of any one element. It is nevertheless wrapped up into one word..."compliance", IMO. I would therefore conclude that yes people are really "waking up" but that the awakening serves little purpose. What will result is an awakened and informed populace being nevertheless, in the end, possibly enslaved by TPTB.
Then comes the the outrageous like Theodore Kaczynski.
I accept the challenge, adapt, modify, improvise, and overcome.
