    through the entire life of the internet, we've been losing ground. And the trend is "more loss."

    I was at Woodstock and it felt great to be around so many like-minded people. Why, everyone there was even more connected than people on twitter!

    But it didn't mean shit about changing politics: just style.

    Same with the internet. We've won some battles; we keep losing the war. Media isn't asleep, it's the conscious agitation/propaganda tool of the 1% and the rightists. And it's effective. Fox is the most egregious, but the rest work to keep the citizenry uninformed, divided, and distracted also.

    Until we deal with that monopoly on the public narratives head-on, we'll keep losing. Howl in unison with our invisible web-friends all we want.

    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.
