And what has been gained?
The media spin doctors have succeeded in smearing almost every group that dares to fight back through demonstrations in our so called "freedom of
Chatting and commenting in facebook doesn't quite cut it as a political budging tool, unless its regarding some superficial menial matter.
Real issues are handled by real people, real HUMAN beings, face to face, now dont get me wrong, great idea that as many people as we can knows that
the media isn't helping much to help solve the problem, but as linguists say, its all in the meaning of the words, the INTERNET is a "Virtual"
place, its seems like a real place, but its not located anywhere, its made out of concepts, its made out of bits and bytes, naturally all the actions
taken in and around the Internet are VIRTUAL.
We need better generations, less oblivious to the world in general, its the younglings the ones that will have to solve this issue, as it wont go away
by itself, we need to help the younger generations to CARE about something other than themselves or the things they own!
The exception defines the rule, I know and have met very interesting individuals, teens and children and young adults that are aware and want to do
something better, but the sad fact is that most simply dont care, or worse yet, dont want to care because its too depressing, too far away, too tired
to do something else than play with video games or whatever kids do these days...
Virtual actions call for virtual solutions.
How can our modern societies be so jaded and disconnected from everything is for me a greater tragedy than the nuclear plants melting down, that we
allowed the human spirit and imagination to get so tangled in disbelief and denial.
I´m afraid that the only sane solution would have been not building those plants in the first place, its similar to the "tragedy" of housing
getting washed away when the dried river bed returns to life and water flows once more.
The answers aren't so obvious, the solution implies greater sacrifices, who amongst us will step up and take our lives back?
I´m a firm believer that the only things we can change are on a personal level, and if the change is true, the fractal nature of the universe will
find ways to overflow our limitations and produce lasting effects in our environment, this time for the better!
