  •  This is too much for most people (17+ / 0-)

    To "go there" and think about the controllers and the controlled, to consider that all information is available to corporate structures (excuse me, persons) who have a long history of lying and cheating to earn more money and control, is to admit that everything is out of your control and you are living in the midst of a continuous series of lies. Admit that and you have to question everything you know and assume.

    Very few people are willing to make that mental jump. They want it all to be good. It's too terrifying otherwise.

    •  like climate change, it's too big. (10+ / 0-)

      I'll admit to  a sense of being overwhelmed from time to time.
      Both this massive web and the myriad faces of climate change are so big, so complex, so interwoven, leading to so many avenues of thought that there is a real urge to just push it all away.
      Then I find myself mulling yet another ramification while weeding the peas, and I'm back up to my neck in it, trying to see connections, etc.

      I think it's the fact that both of these issues are critically important to the progress of humankind that forces me to keep at it. I can definitely see why many do not.

      This simply cannot continue with the lights on.

      Just imagine if J. Edgar Hoover married a turbo-charged Google database and had half the Pentagon budget.

      Then imagine you could buy off the top media who want to say "boo" about what you do.

      Okay, then try to imagine how this would work when everyone knows what is going on.

      The jig is up!
