    of our using them or having to accept what they do based upon other influences.

    Agreed:

    there was an expectation of "one demand", and really we should have nipped that in the bud earlier than we did.  Live and learn.

    Okay, the Government says you MUST abort your child. NOW do you get it?

      But there was no message we could have spread to get the point across that we wanted more direct involvement from people that they wouldn't have sabotaged.  The corporate media has many ways to ignore messages that threaten it, tailoring your message to the media means you can't address that issue.

      But, yeah, we screwed that whole "one demand" thing up.  Can't argue with that.

      The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.
