Manufacturing Consent - Check this film out when you have a chance. It lays out how information is used as means of control in modern democratic society and gives us real solutions. I can't stress enough how powerful this film and its message are. It's also a joy to watch. Here's the trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LVsiP0s33A&feature=youtube_gdata_player

Glad you agree. Pretty incredible hoepw many of us in U.S. are asleep under the spell of mainstream media. It encourages such nihilism.

Fighting the media is a major priority. Just look at what they've done to us.

I completely agree. I'm thrilled by how much we were able to bypass the mainstream media and feed video and photos and reporting directly to American citizens and the world. That is a major achievement. I still think we need to also continue to use the mainstream media as well to get our message out. Walmart strike broke through despite corporate efforts to tamp down the story.

Definitely check out the film Manufacturing Consent when you hav a chance. It'll blow your mind in a good way.

Do you have any thoughts on
