    Signs of awareness

 

 I have to say I’m starting to be impressed with the UK press, it’s still 90%+ fluff and propaganda, but I’ve noticed in the last year or so a definite

awakening from the safe concensus trance…

 The guardian IEA story, AEP in the telegraph, and today… this:

 I guess you could cal it a condensed “Jekyll Island for dummies”.

  I have a strong feeling that in 4 years or so, most of the issues we discuss on here will be thoroughly mainstream… peak oil, fiat money, sustainability..

 

aside:  I remember talking exitedly about something called the internet in 1993 and getting blank stares.. 5 years later and we have “permanent september” as it was termed on usenet… (never ending stream of newbies..)

 I think the internet can take much of the credit for this growth in understanding and awareness.. the chance to connect dots.

 elaborating on:

 ” the internet can take much of the credit for this growth in understanding and awareness.. the chance to connect dots.”

 it also connects-people-who-connect-dots, this site being a notable example…

 

  in a way the internet is the new America… the new land of freedom.. maybe it needs a statue of liberty.. ?

 sorry.. waxing poetic.. it’s the homebrew…

The Electronic Frontier Foundation thinks so, too, right?

 I dunno.. but Ron Paul is definitely my president…

.. and I’m a mere UK serf/subject of HM the Queen.  

 or a “landless peasant f**k” as Deek Jackson would say… 🙂

ps. IETF > EFF … IMHO.
