    ... before the American public... pulls out their ear buds, turns off their TVs and wakes up.  

    MLK wrote from jail his own conclusions on the white American moderate as:

    "... more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says: "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I cannot agree with your methods of direct action"..."

    So, we're left stuck in our role of trying to wake the public into consciousness. We know, decidedly, that Americans will not move to recover this country's hijacked systems without different information than what is spoon fed to them, on average 20/hrs per week.

    I recall a recent study reporting Americans watching 20 hrs on average in their living rooms... despite Americans working more for less. I've not read the thesis (yet) but I assume the topic is addressed inside.
