"Sometimes information from the internet has a way of altering some people's perception of reality."
The internet is by no means perfect, but it is a wonderful means of sharing information at the grassroots level. A grassroots movement is, I feel, the only way that the PTB will ever change. Lots of ordinary folks coming together can be very powerful, but as you say Zoe, it will take time.
Our perceptions are altered daily by advertising on tv and we've been indoctrinated by our education system, etc., so it's great to see people breaking free from the mainstream media view and thinking for themselves.
Maybe this Gulf disaster is enough to cause people to keep raising awareness for a very, very long time. I believe that it is.
These are stated as my beliefs, not as absolute truth.
