we live in an age of information. The internet has made the independent dissemination of information possible in a way that has not existed to date. We, as a people, have the power to educate ourselves, to inform ourselves and to raise our voices when the very government that we elected abuses its power, deconstructs our systems and sells our assets to the highest bidder. The problem is that so many people have been lulled both into complacency and political apathy that they have been disempowered. They feel powerless and so they behave in a powerless manner.
