2. The Internet
...and all the YouTubers and bloggers who tirelessly and voluntarily contributed to more informed coverage of the W. regime's atrocities in the US and worldwide
It is the most powerful tool for informing, engaging and including the public in the sociopolitical discourse of its life. People are no longer passive observers of the events that govern their lives, they are active participants in assessing these events, informing each other of these events, and interacting with each other to analyze and improve the world. The Internet has enormously ameliorated the process of human communication and information exchange. As an added bonus, the Internet has meant that corporate news and government lies are not an endpoint but a starting point for learning about the facts of our world. The anonymous bloggers and YouTubers who spend countless hours voicing their knowledge and views have brought a new level of democratic practice to news dissemination.
