But The Television May Be Revolutionized, Or "I Like To Watch"

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.

  1. Dr. Wakina stood firm for the truth when he agreed to help me get back my husband via his email: {}.
    He is a lead figure in love spell at first and at last through the help of his maker.
    His love spell protects the love, relationships, marriages many people had lost and guards them to achieve the success and happiness they deserve.
    Doctor makes sure his client’s heart never wavered until the work is concluded, his intelligence toward issues never weakened.
    Many people including doubters can now testify that the excellence of his love spell has become manifest in most successful homes all over the world today.
    My family is blessed by his spiritual work and I think he deserves more than praises for what he has done, I never thought it would be possible until it was done.
    Thank you Dr. Wakina for bringing back my loving husband and for healing many broken hearts. I pray for more strength. <3
