Do Venezuelan Protests Represent Popular Discontent, or The Old Qualms of a Divided Elite?


Cuba, Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and others in Latin America are our predecessors in revolution. Those who fail to grasp this reality, and act accordingly, are on the wrong side of history.  The trick, it seems to me, is to have the foresight to look into the future and position ourselves on the right side of history, today.

Simply put, the mass media is lying to you. You've been brainwashed through misinformation and disinformation. Our corporate-run media serves, for the most part, as a megaphone for the government with a serious conflict of interest, namely profits, as its main motivation for propagating and perpetuatiing lies. In many cases, those within the media don't know they are serving systems of death and have become, in effect, instruments of death.

Sometimes good articles get written and reported, but the overall effect of a media that fails to report the most important truths constitutes a disservice to the general public and the entire global community. The occasional excellent article will not save humanity on that fateful day when time runs out for us all.
