It has well been said that "the revolution will not be televised", but with the internet it may now be possible for the “television” to be revolutionized. If you doubt that, check out the video links in the "Red Pill Guide" section of this blog.
The genius of Gandhi's peaceful revolution in India was that all he asked the people to do was “nothing”—a general strike that paralyzed the British colonial government. After a couple centuries of colonization, the Indians' culture had become much less confrontational so a conventional revolution was very unlikely to succeed. The general strike allowed everyone to make their point with almost no face-to-face confrontation. Gandhi took what might have been considered a weakness to a classical revolutionary strategist and turned it into a strength.
Today, in western cultures, “doing nothing” is practically synonymous with watching TV, an activity that comes quite easily for (too) many people. But what if we could borrow a page from Gandhi's playbook and make watching “television” (aka "doing nothing") a revolutionary act?
I submit that by circulating links to many of the videos all of us have been watching and advocating, we enable our friends and relatives to play a part in remaking society by simply watching. Films and documentaries like Zeitgeist, Terrorstorm, Disclosure Project, Loose Change, Evidence of Revision produce a revolutionary change in thinking. Eventually, as goes the mind, so goes the body and daily actions. It is my hope that we'll soon reach a critical mass and begin to move from eduction into action—by actively changing our patterns of living to avoid cooperating with injustice and to cooperate more completely with the natural world while, simultaneously preserving and enhancing appropriate technology.
Indeed, as we change our thinking, these changes will become inevitable.
