  1. The key is the media, as those who pulled off 911 fully understand. What is to be done? There is one answer, and only one: The mainline press and TV networks are to be DE-CONTROLLED. The airwaves, as our air itself, and the water essential to human life belong to us, We the People. Nationalization is not the right term because it implies a political solution and we all know who currently hold the reins of government. We must look for action from our loyal armed forces. The public, which is becoming aware of this problem, will soon support such an action. If our organized forces fail to act, then it will be up to the country’s Unorganized Militia, as referred to our Constitution’s 2nd Amendment – millions of legally armed citizens. Once the propaganda machine is decontrolled we may expect meaningful public political dialogue and a triumphant third political party. House-cleaning can then take place rapidly and democratically. We are not a banana republic and do not need a military coup by a junta to make systemic changes in government or to threaten our leaders. Thanks to our founders wisdom and our founding documents better government is achievable by democratic means. Our problem today is one industry and its commercial advertising base. What we lose in ads and propaganda we will gain in dialogue, information, and replacement of the incessant talk about terror, tribes, profitable foreign wars, and trivia. It is time that we look at and address serious problems here in our own country and our own communities. Our airwaves must be decontrolled and we must not be persuaded by propaganda that this is being done by those presently in power.

    We are in big trouble. What are we going to do? There is no free press, it has been enslaved by the corporations. Newspapers are useless drivel and TV is Big Brother. Talk amongst yourselves. Get to know your neighbors. This is how we will beat the information freeze.
