Love and compassion always trump wilful ignorance and fear (mongering). The mainstream media seal their own dwindling fates by not acknowledging the true intent of the masses of people who showed up that day. It was the current theme of the people who came to speak to me on the day - their profound disenchantment with the system as it is and how very reassuring it was to see so many people (and I have goosebumps as I write this) show up to express their concern too. Extreme feelings of relief and validation. We are not being told the truth about so many issues. We are being treated with contempt by our government and we are being treated with contempt by the media - that hurts. Especially when the major theme of the day was based around the concept of empathy. A foreign concept to those who support the system as it is and a major failing. *Here's an update on the Jaqueline Maley story from a different source; http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-03-27/dunlop-rage-against-the-mainstream/5348152?WT.mc_id=newsmail It looks as though some journalists in the mainstream media are finally being held accountable.
