There is a future where civilization exists with equalization, decentralization, fairness and respect for all, including nature. We're seeing the beginnings of this in Argentina, with the Arab Spring, Occupy Wall Street. Certainly this is an emerging process and it is far from complete, full bloom. It is new journey for humanity and we are at the beginning of a long road, still learning how to walk, how to wield our power.
The top-down powers-- particularly the most powerful people and groups mentioned above-- will not take this laying down. They are doing all they can to buttress and consolidate their power, their positions, and to weaken the rest of us. We see it in their efforts to control or squelch the internet, to eliminate privacy, to monetize broadband wireless, which should be accessible by all, like roads, streets and public education-- as an investment in our future.
Part of the challenge is the traitors described above have infected most Americans with boiled frog syndrome. Throw a frog into boiling water and it jumps out to save its life. But put a frog in cold water and gradually heat it to boiling and you get a cooked, dead frog. Americans have been simmering, losing more rights, losing good jobs, with threats of loss of the internet, loss of access to future opportunities. We have to help the hundreds of millions of Americans who are victims to wake up and start fighting for themselves. In China, censorship is used to prevent people from engaging in mass actions. In the US, the media is used to distract people and keep them asleep"gradually boiling. The alternative media and the Occupy Wall Street movement are the best hopes for the future of the American middle class.
Just to be totally clear, Barack Obama is also on this list. Just today, a leaked document about the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement shows that Obama is breaking his promises, selling out America, voters and constitutional rights in the worst trade agreement ever-- and one designed to be the last.
