Not enough people are truly educated as to whats really going on, so I doubt there will be a "boiling over".
What WILL happen is that there will be a catastrophic event take place (economic disaster) that will cause the people to come out of their little
trances. Food trucks will stop, gasoline will be scarce and for a period of time life will be thrown back to the "wild west" days.
Some people will ban together to survive and work to better their government/society.
Others will panic and begin to kill one another for the last piece of beef jerky.
Life will go on, but we are due for a correction in our economy and way of living.
Most people don't agree to what's really going on, even if they are educated. Some people blame the rich, some people blame the government, some
people blame the banks, some people blame liberals, some people think aliens are helping the Illuminati control all of those people.
The Alex Joneses and David Ickes can't agree to what's going on. Even within the conspiracy world there's too much division to rally enough people
who can agree what to change.
I think it's important to root out corruption and misdeeds we can prove and I think people like Alex Jones make it their life to look for that and
that does help if stories get broken, despite his many flaws. Bloggers and Anonymous are breaking stories and getting people in trouble who deserve
it. The internet is the new 4th estate, or at least a good turbo charge it's needed.
So I think things can be done with new media, but a mass movement based on the ATS forum content will be very difficult.
