Exactly, Sheri. What we need in all actuality is something along the lines of a New Enlightenment as a companion to increase awareness.

I used Sept. 11, 2001 as an example, however, after thinking about, it was too extreme. Better, more fitting, is the fact that our daily bombardment of news and media-related happenings are controlled by 5 mega-corporations. That's right, 5 CEOs have the power to advance and perpetuate their own agendas.

curiosity: You have much more optimism than I. My experience has been that 99% are oblivious or simply don't care enough (if at all). As for filters and dissemination, I wish I had the confidence that you have.

How do you make someone care, Sheri? I think it has to have a detrimental effect upon them personally before they invest effort to change.
