Thankyou McSpotlight, that was my exact point, if we fill the world with people who just moan we get nowhere what we need is action. Non-violent action is the way forward, not going in the first place, persuading others not to and sharing information that we aren't meant to know.
Freedom of speech was not achieved by people sat at home contradicting what they say but by people making movements and fighting for their beliefs, gandhi, malcolm x, etc. etc. we didn't the changes in South Africa by saying ooh dear how bad is that, but by boycotts, protests and sanctions, no its not ideal down there but it is a damn sight better
anyway off the soap box i'm off
