The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it.

No one sees the original post as just a rant, that slightly adheres to a majority of the mindset of the general ATS population... and nothing more? Nothing has been brought to the table except what most people already think, yet this reaches the front page of ATS?
Is this what we've resorted to? Lobbying and campaigning for something everyone already believes but that most people are scared to do anything about?
Don't give me the "The General Population is Zombified!" antic because let me explain to you... You'd have to be a literal moron, a visually impaired and/or blind, and deaf individual to not notice what's going on around you right now as a US Citizen. Gas prices are through the freaking roof. Canned meat is making a huge climb and it's supposed to be the cheapest meat you can buy. Hell even water is becoming more expensive.
Everyone sees what the hell is going on. They choose not to do anything about it because America is full of scaredy cats, confused individuals, distraction, and consequential fear, and unless you are brave enough to go campaign on the actual streets of the neigborhoods engulfed by this "disease" of a charactistic, you will do absolutely NOTHING to affect today's society.
Going absolutely crazy with PLAIN facts that EVERYONE knows on a FORUM is not going to wake anyone up who isn't already sipping on sugar-induced coffee.
You get no S+F from me. You get a nod that you understand what's going on. Now if I see you actually out on the streets with a crowd of people around you, I will personally go give you a REAL flag and a handshake (which is somewhat equivalent to a star).

I'll give you a hint. We do not war with flesh and blood nor do we wage war like the world does...its in that book you call the bible. 2corinthians10.3 & ephesians6.12
You cant win this war as a human....your DnA is contaminated. Only the father can ready you for battle. Im actually sad for the man that use weapons,brute force and strategy in this war. It will not be sufficient nor will logic.edit on 9-5-2011 by superluminal11 because: (no reason given)

Why do you think they want to get rid of PBS and defund public libraries? A well educated public who can think critically doesn't serve the purpose of the elites. They want slaves who are just smart enough to do the work.

Can I get an AMEN to your post! BOY have you nailed it. The MSM is a joke. People that call it the "liberal" MSM are fools. The Media has it's own agenda, and it isn't our best interest. They control everything we see and hear. And we are the useful idiots that nod and drool at the latest stupidity they send our way.
I haven't watched "news entertainment" in many a year. I read, I'll watch clips sometimes, but I will never watch any of their crap. The biggest useful idiots are those that follow Faux News ... but the other News Agencies are also loaded with idiocy

I work in Corporate America and I think 9 out of 10 people believe the media totally, if they even take the time to listen to anything about the news/world. If I try to talk to anyone about Japan they look at me like I am utterly nuts. I have had many people tell me I am being "silly" to be concerned about the radiation. I would not dare to bring out the obvious lie of the Osama tales.
We as a nation have forgotten/been trained to not think logically, independently or with a reflective perspective that considers alternatives. Everyone is on auto-pilot or something, just thinking about how they are going to entertain themselves, not worry about their debt (go buy something else) or how they will numb themselves to life (drugs, alcohol, porn, etc).
This exactly ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
The news is carefully designed to be consumed by "Corporate America". That way when others dissent they can be duly labeled as uneducated, unpatriotic or a conspiracy nut.
The media is doing an incredible job of hypnotizing the masses with useless information and debate while the country goes to hell in a hand basket. What we need to do, is narrow down reliable news sites across the net and find ways to promote those to people we know, start to get them off of the puppet government media and slowly open there eyes to the real issues in the country today.
This isn't something that is gonna happen overnight, but the more people we are able to expose to our stories about what is actually happening in the world and the ability to point them to credible sources to try and open there eyes is a first step and everyone who wakes up is going to wan't to wake somebody else up.
The ball is in our court to get the word out and for each of us to make a difference in the world we are all forced to live in at present, knowledge is power and it will set you free, that's why the bogus MSM is in place, to keep us imprisoned.
Ask someone what was the last book they read and alot of them will look at you like you are weird. Everything is now about something/someone talking at them. That is how they get everything that comes at them. Unfortunately for them, they don't seem to realize that everything is deception now (government, business, war, our food, our water, our health care system, all these things have a hidden agenda or truth behind them that people do not want to see).
