A Bit Of Reality. . .

Knowledge - Why Is Such A Reality-Based Concept So Elusive
compiled by The Old Hippie, Because Manufactured Reality Is An Abomination


Just a few items to stimulate the sound-bite abused cells of our political minds.  Interviews, videos, Opinions, Articles, and animations that I have been able to discover during my travels inside what
Bush referred to as the "internets."  I've endeavored to avoid the overly intellectualized, and unfairly biased items as best as I could.  That is not to say that some of the items are not obviously biased, but I hope biased toward reality, and not political propaganda.

I've also attempted to include items that are interesting, important, and have an unexpected "eye-opening" perspective.  Especially during this historic period of bombarding bombast.

These are strange times people.  As Garcia said, "What a long strange trip it's been."  I sincerely hope these items help in your own research of our political reality. . .

by Rob Walker, New York Times Magazine, Dec. 5, 2004


"I think we all do this naturally anyway," Bollaert concluded.  "If you find something you like and somebody asks your advice and you have a product, good or bad, you'll say don't get it or do get it.  We're a consumer society."

Activists Crawl Through Web to Untangle U.S. Secrecy

by William Fisher, Inter Press Service News Agency, Nov. 29, 2004


To combat the Bush administration's penchant for secrecy, U.S. citizens have been forced to un-
earth new sources for information they once read in their daily newspapers.  But thanks to a few dedicated individuals and not-for-profit groups -- and the Internet -- such material is easier to come by than ever before.
