Something terrible is happening

A witty approach to an old subject is always welcome, I think...

Witty it is.
It has a point.
It makes things clear.
In a witty way.
Clear, more it cannot be.
But, how many of 80% Americans will see this?
Will take this in consideration?
Will support change?
Or...
I do not know.

I know that my comment is not witty at all.

Maybe not so many, but it is possible that this approach will reach someone who has heard the same thing before, but didn't consider it because of how it was explained to them. Yet perhaps this way will be more convincing for some...
I think every single attempt counts, as long as it is in the right direction.
You may reach only one person, and that person may reach only two people, but one of those 2 people may reach thousands, and in effect, you have then reached thousands. Everything counts.

Yes Chiara I said that, but I prefer Sabina's approach. Information is on the chain of influences. Everything counts. The movie Corporation is the great example. In that movie it is brilliantly explained, between many other great things, how important is not to be ignorant when we hear something in small doses. Because like everything else it is the question of the training. When you want to come to the top form you start from small exercises because as much your body can take at the very beginning. With time, by increasing the time and the difficulty of exercises, step by step, in one moment you are in the point that had not been imaginable at the beginning. It works like that with everything and the whole teams of well trained people for this purpose know very well how to make the same exercise for our brains, step by step, so that influencing us with small amount at the beginning, and by increasing the same "quality" of that over time, they bring us exactly there where we belong, in the herd of sheep. That is why it is so important to be conscious about everything. Better that than the sad realization in one moment much later that because we hadn't been that, something has been happening that we do not like, but because of our tolerance and ignorant distance we actually had contributed to be like that.
Good point Sabina. By the way, it explains very well many of our topics and put on much higher place some of insisting on understanding things like they are and to what they serve, although it must necessarily looked like that.
