Here's a radical thought.
LETS DONT save it.
The only thing to restore civic participation is a return to newspapers, and the dismantling of an information construct that has failed. The internet permits cocooning in one's own reality, and launching anonymous hatred.
Frankly I am sick of the whole damned thing.
STEP 2 - shoot down all satellites and END this thing called cable. or dish networks. It also permits people to be blissfully disconnected from reality.
When we read the same paper, and watched the same tv, it was a lot easier to come to concensus. This last year has turned me into a neo-luddite who dreams of jettisoning our shred digital nightmare. I mean, we just had our first twitter election for chrissakes!
And i want nothing to do with the next one.
Mail me a postcard.
