It is quite sad to see that this is the state of things but also quite inspiring to do the right thing. If there was a flood of whistleblower revelations that outpaced their suppression, this would (WILL) be a different story. People simply need to know there are others out there coming forward to inspire their own courage to do the same.
In recent weeks it has become quite clear that many non-western countries see very well what is going on here. They see the corruption more vividly than ever before, and some like Iceland are actually dealing with the problems at their core and not just treating symptoms.
I believe we are making progress because this collective, global awakening cannot be reversed or stopped. Young and old people alike are getting information through unfiltered and unbiassed new media that is on the rise and it's incredibly comforting to see so much GOOD being done. Our television still spews out distracting illusions but they are just that. The Reality is that society is shifting into the hands of the people and the big corporations are doomed because the tools being used are the same ones that these corporations have adopted for more growth and revenue. They can't turn off the internet, they just want to use it in evil ways. But it is very clear that the creativity of the "average" person who puts out videos or podcasts or blogs or even becomes active in their schools or social circles, is so far outpacing the status quo "nothing to see here" BS that no one buys anymore. There are those who have been a life long cog in the machine and they may spend the rest of their lives as such, but the ones that follow them will not. It's simply not the same information environment they're growing up in.
However subtle it may be at this point, this is truly the unfolding of a Global Information Revolution.
