They vote and politicians go on the merry way and ignore them. They cut expenses and still run out of money before the end of the month. They try and keep a positive out look and the TV news/newspapers just shoot it full of holes. What is a working stiff supposed to do? How is the common person going to keep moving forward, when it seems around every corner is a roadblock or someone to slap them down? Excuse me if this next statement offends ... GET OVER YOURSELF, this is what living in the USA has always been (contrary to reports of a blissful populace in the 50's, 70's and 80's). The difference is not anything that is actually going on, but our ability to know about it. We now live with 24 hour information updates, the internet has information at our finger tips anytime we need it (some of it accurate). Opinion has become entertainment and then morphed into a hybrid information service for the uninformed. In the early part of the 17th centurya technology became available that scared the powers that be to taeir core. Some took steps to regulate it, while others took a more controlling approach, maintaining tight "state" controls. That it survived at all is a credit to the few who saw potential in discerning information to the masses. Newspapers were born.., and through to today they are still regulated and controlled in many parts of the word. In the last century another form of communication was foisted upon the unsuspecting. Radio, again regulation and control from the powers on high... Once again the technology was greater than the political powers and another genie escaped its' bottle. Radio was used in World War II as a propaganda medium, most infamously by the Japanese in the pacific with their broadcasts to the allied troops, "Tokyo Rose" was a celebrity. In this country radio was regulated, but allowed to flourish in small towns and big cities alike. In other country's governments allowed only their stations or content. This gave rise to our government creating Voice of America, also propaganda, just our propaganda, which made it alright. That gave rise to Radio Marti - which was just for Cuba in the 60's and still broadcasts today but can not be heard because of jamming from the island. The British took a different approach, they created the BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation) and the BBC World Service which was in every colony in the empire. The BBC was mostly independent of the government in power, the World Service was nothing like the YeA, in that it covered the Empire from within and not just broadcasting at a particular location. Each country and region had their own broadcast and it was not just based locally it was focused locally. Once TV became wide spread (basically radio with pictures) the same system went into place. Some governments took total control others (like the USA) allowed it to be a private enterprise. That brings us to now, and the internet age. We have seen the power that people being allowed to connect with each other unfettered by the leash of a repressive government can release ... Tunisia, Egypt, and other states in the middle east where the people have risen up to cast away their shackles.., only to discover that the overthrow of the tyrant is easy compared to replacing them and the structures of government and society at large. There is more happening on the internet than any of us can consume with casual browsing. Most of us only read the english language websites and blogs, we don't know how to read foreign languages, so we don't go there ... some are translated, some are not. Television is still providing the majority of news that the people of this county receive on a daily basis ... short 3 to 6 minute packets of what you need to know. Many base their opinions solely on 30 minutes of network supplied information or the constant updates of a cable channel. Improved communication has impr)ved our lives, it has also made us more aware of the world at large md how it impacts our lives even when we don't understand or agree with it. It has also complicated our lives. We now demand immediate gratification, problems have to be solved on the fly, no time to assess and respond in a thoughtful manner... WE WANT IT NOW. If it's not working, cut your losses and move on. This usually leads to poor decisions made by committees and individuals that jerk us one way then another without the goal ever being realized and the path never being clear. It is the kind of vision that looks to the short term benefits of those in charge and not the long term for those who the program was envisioned. It's the internet age, and the inte=rnet is still evolving. New rules announced this week will create more top level domain names, if you can afford them. Would you pay $100,000 to have a dot julian or dot your-last-name instead of just a dot cam? You can bet someone will.
