1974 - Prediction for the US. POLL: Was he correct?
Also, George Washington blogspot has a great post on th internet here:
Are We Winning the Battle on the Web? Or Are We Just Letting Off eSteam?
The commonly-accepted wisdom of bloggers (such as me) is that we are slowly but surely winning the battle to spread the truth.
After all, the web has now become the most popular source for news.
And the alternative media has sometimes pounded on stories so hard that the corporate news was forced to cover them, and the politicians and business elites were forced to scramble to explain away their actions.
But a comment on my website tonight posted by dogismyth summarized something I've been thinking about for the past week:
This is why there is still unlimited, unfettered access to freedom of speech on the internet. Because the powers that be (PTB) know that people feel better about the situation just openly talking about the issues. The internet to them is not a threat, but it is our crutch. People complain, explain, disdain, sustain and act in pain on the internet about a myriad of problems.
AND THEY FEEL BETTER. So much better, that they do absolutely nothing else. Well, most do anyway.
