Big Win for Truth, Justice and FREE PRESS! Finally some sanity from the “system.” Democracy Now! wins in court.

Yes, folks there is GOOD news for a change on what has lately been a bleak dark landscape of a justice system suffering the pollution of Tar Sands ilk deluxe. Consider the recent execution of Troy Davis and you get my meaning pronto–unless you’ve been hiding under a rock waiting from some rain to end the abnormal drought affecting your homestead. Oh yeah, climate change is real and it has not yet begun to kick our collective butts like no other bite back of Mother Nature so far. How adaptable are you? Okay, on to the GOOD news–Democracy Now!’s Amy Goodman, Sharif Abdel Kouddous->THE REPORTER IN EGYPT– and Nicole Salazar have won a settlement in a federal lawsuit against Minneapolis, St. Paul and, yes, the Secret Service for unlawful arrest of the Press.

THIS ROCKS

Why does this rock? Because if you haven’t noticed the freedom of the press has been a ghostly shadow of late in the US of A. If it weren’t for independent media and journalists one could argue that there’s not a shred of reputable uncorrupted by corporate interests press left living and breathing in America.  Journalists around the world are being killed in record numbers. I have yet to comprehend the condemnation and targeting of Al Jazeera News for so long. Oh I take that back, I DO comprehend it–Al Jazeera does what American Mainstream Media often fails to do these days–REPORT THE NEWS. OOPs that’s not fashionable these days for the comfort of The One Percent.  Good reporting gives the 99% information and information leads to communication and independent thinking and that leads to NEW IDEAS. Hot damn, The ONE Percent certainly does not want the feudal serfs of the 99% thinking independently.  The One Percent certainly do NOT want the 99% knowing what the profit driven agenda has done to people around the world and in the USA.  The One Percent does NOT want the still pre-occupied by Dancing with the Stars audience to be distracted by non corporate sponsored Reality.  Let’s sell tickets? Hmm, shall we? Why not? Sell tickets to those still with their brainpans stuck in the idiot creating boxes to the greatest show on Earth–the HUMAN EVOLUTION.  Yea, the human evolution that is currently underway around the world from Occupy Wall Street to the streets of Bolivia. The world is changing.  The tipping point is approaching. We have deadly serious choices to make if we are to survive as a species on Earth.  Some of you have heard this from me several times already. Sorry if it sounds like I’m beating a dead horse. I’m trying to beat a live drum.

So–this win for Democracy Now! is good news because it validates the right to a press corp to be free from arrest for covering events that The One Percent are not fond of having spread through their serfdoms.  Considering everything going on now from Occupying Wall Street–and beyond–to Protesting the Tar Sands Keystone XL Pipeline–a FREE, unimpeded working Press is urgently NEEDED.  Especially here in America where many serfs haven’t yet realized their place in the Feudal system that the Corporate Personhoods have been steadily creating.  Do we really want to wake up in the world of Orwell’s 1984?

I don’t. Do you?

Yes, it’s worth YOUR time to hear Amy Goodman Speak Truth.  Information is POWER!

    The media is indeed in an awful state. The limited coverage of Occupy Wall Street protests from mainstream media outlets is highly illustrative.

    You mention evolulution.
    Consider this: When Neanderthals became Cromagnon man, there was a change of behaviour driven by the new enhanced frontal lobe that led off on a tangent to create modern Man.
    Maybe we are at a new crossroad where Cooperational Man is splitting off from Individual First Man. If we are to survive the next century, we had better cooperate or we are fucked!
    And I hate to say it, but there are cultures that are closer to the new Man than we of the West, but there is hope. You are there and you are not alone and as you point out, youy are not part of the 1% so there is potentially 99% that could be interested in embracing policies that might (just) save us.

      Hi Stafford. I do believe we are at a new crossroads as you put it. White buffalo have been born signfying a time of great change for humanity. If this will be positive or negative is up to us and the choices we make. Among the 99% are those who could indeed help build a better way of living than we currently have going. If not, I doubt, as Sara Teasdale wrote of birds after nuclear war, “not one will care.”
      Peace
