Maybe what's new is we know

Progressive Americans declare the loss of our county on a daily basis. But, really, isn't it the same as it ever was? Wasn't there always a spy program? Didn't we always engage in secret, illegal wars based on lies? Didn't various Administrations always hide the truth from the public? Wasn't the election always rigged (by ensuring that it is always between two corporate-approved old white guys who belong to the same club)?

What's new is that now we know. What's new is free speech on the Internet. What's new is a new generation of truth-tellers. What's new is that the people of the world are awakening.

Maybe we should stop whining about how things used to be. Did we prefer ignorance as bliss or do we prefer truth? Let's stand up proudly and prove to power...prove to each other...that we can handle the truth.
