Do you have any ideas that could benefit humanity? I mean really? Are there any solutions? I've been checking out Indy Media here for about three weeks and it's fascinating. It really is. I've learned a lot, and had some almost productive conversations. I've read some interesting discussions about eliminating poverty, anarchic society, consumerism, pirates and Zimbabwe; it's really been an education. There is no doubt that Portland Indy media has a readership of very intelligent people.
Pretend I am an overweight armchair, online revolutionary with really low self esteem. I developed the ability to think critically, from watching the Matrix. I caught the Holy Ghost in my elevator and now I want to take action. I can find a flaw in everything, I can see a perfectly white wall and if there is so much as a smudge, pin hole, or spot on it, my eye's will never leave the imperfection.
Luckily I am not the only one looking at Indy media, others might be able to over look the one blemish and appreciate the other 99 point whatever, percent of your idea. I am looking for ideas which don't demand too much of me, remember I am fat, I think too much, and I have trouble sleeping.
I am looking for Ideas which can grow into a movement, not to demanding, but meaningful, real change, like the anointed Barack promised. Don't matter to me where you're coming from, left, right, green, revolutionary. The truth is I really need some hope, things are looking bleak, its 2009 and I don't see didly squat on the horizon. I am seriously considering just investing in the biggest glass manufacturers on wall street, so when people get upset and break windows I'll be able to give some of my earnings to people who are really suffering, not me, remember I'm fat.
So what say you? Just post it here on Indy media in the discussion section and maybe I, and many like me can make a new year's resolution based upon what you propose. Common Indy media viewers discuss and critique the proposals and submit your own.
Let's try to keep the negativity down to a minimum, remember I see All flaws.
