Our communities, economies and all the earth can benefit from messages such as this. It is paramount that the existing forms of corporate controlled media be usurped by the ideas of those who "don't have value" in the system.

The ability of a community to "take back the government', establish "local living economies" and eradicate the notion of "planned obselescence" lies in the breaking up of existing corporate and media domination in our lives.

Some very good points are also raised in "10 recommendations for another way", see

#4 - "make your voice heard"!!

#6 - unplug (the TV and the internet) and plug in (the community)...

"On-line activism is a good start, but spending time in face-to-face civic or community activities strengthens the community and many studies show that a stronger community is a source of social and logistical support, greater security and happiness. A strong community is also critical to having a strong, active democracy."

Change lies in the sharing of these ideas and The CM is a brilliant tool to bring unity and awareness to the masses... SPREAD THE WORD(s)!!

Thank you sundog... brilliantly put!

From the age of consumerism do we now find ourselves on the brink of societal change. From 'survival of the fittest' to 'distinction led by consumerism' do we find ourselves at last to a time that must seek unity.

The Citizens Media will champion the voice of the people... but it is the PEOPLE who will champion the dawn of tomorrow.

Spread the word on the 'Story of Stuff'. Be the difference!
