(McSpotlight: let's trim this down a bit; you can find the preceding article in full in the above message)


: So, if you are to save the world, do so by making yourself seen and heard. If they try and silence you; speak louder and dress more brightly. If they try and use force against you; conduct yourself in a peaceful fashion, and two people will pick up where you left off.

: After all, we're not just fighting for our children here; it's entirely likely that we will become virtual slaves within the next 50 years.

Don't worry Gideon, I agree with everything you said, and I'm really proud that I live in a world where people still have the forums and the courage to sit down and type in what you wrote. It was fantastic!!!
