Versailles and the time-traveling tour guide
The one-time greatest strength and now achilles heal of the Bush Administration

The awareness movement

How silly that we Progressive, Liberal, anti-Bush, anti-corporate, anti-war, Green, pick-your-label or pick-your-issue supporters get fractionalized and marginalized among ourselves.  We are, after all, part of the same movement.  We are all part of what might be called the "Awareness Movement".

The Awareness Movement is comprised of people around the world who are not fooled by authority.  We know governments lie to serve the interests of the ruling elite.  We know the media is owned by the ruling elite to serve the interest of the ruling elite.  We know that no institution is inevitable, but is put in place by the ruling elite to serve the interests of the ruling elite.  We know religion isn't the word of god, but the words of the ruling elite to serve the interests of the ruling elite.  We know schools don't teach truth, but teach what the ruling elites want us to know.  We know these forces of power are destroying the world.  We are aware of why things are the way they are.  Even more importantly, we are aware of the specifics.  We aren't fools and we aren't fooled.

When a critical mass of people around the world become aware we will reach the next era.  It will be an era not of nationalism, blind faith, and dutiful support...but of personal convictions and calculated decision-making.  Democracy will finally work.
