list gets updated regularly. One of the best and most powerful sites on the net in my opinion.
Why do we not have a new investigation yet? The media... the corporate owned, mainstream whore media!

Well, let's talk about the prospects of the TM bearing fruit.
First, who are prospective Truthers. From a demographic standpoint they are a minority. Without going into detail let's talk about who we can reach out to and what our chances of succeeding at converting that person.
First, understand that I define maturity by the extent to which you have developed your "envelope of concern."
So let's say this target represents your envelope of concern.
At the center is you. Moving outward ring by ring you have your immediate family, then your extended familly and friends clan, then your neighborhood, then your community, then your state, then the region, then the nation, then the world and the last ring is the earth ecosystem.
How far out from the center you are determines how mature you are in my eyes. So the crackhead who thinks only of himself and says, "f*ck everyone else," is at the bullseye and no further. So is a three-year-old child.
Meanwhile the earth ecosystems professor's envelope of concern spans the entire target.
Now who is going to be a truther?
Clearly you have to reaching those outer two rings. You have to have a world view. If you are only concerned about what is best for this country, being what it is, then the false-flag op that led us to be imperial conquerors of the oil reserves of Asia was a great thing.
So we're talking about a small number of folks who have, let's see, shall we say a mostly accurate world view that they rely on to make decisions. Most people don't have a world view.
Of those who have an expansive enough envelope of concern, then only the ones willing to risk becoming an enemy of the state will do anything more than passively support the TM. What I mean is the aforementioned biology professor must also not be a pussy, scared of his own government and whatnot.
So the number shrinks.
Apply this logic to the bulk of those in the peace movement and see what number you get. If the peace movement consists mostly of people with largely accurate world views and expansive envelopes of concern, then what number of these folks are going to have the guavas to ratchet it up to the next step?
Then take it a step further.
Of that indisputably small number, bigger than it would be without the internet but small no doubt, what number is going to be willing to become active on a local level, organize activist chapters that connect with a national movement, take it to the streets, organize or participate in strikes and protests?
Again the number shrinks.
So, hey, I'm not ruling out the success of the TM. I'm saying that it takes time. With enough time we can reach out to enough people and get that number high enough that we can make something happen. That's what I believe. Now my opinion, and I am sticking to it, is that we are almost out of time. We have maybe 18 months.
If Giuliani gets appointed president we get 4 more years. If not, then the TM dies indicating the ultimate defeat of the last of the progressive movements. Hope you know how to survive without fresh water, sewage, basic infrastructure and how to evade the lawdogs; b/c there is potential things could get hairy here over the course of the next half decade.
