DO SOME ALTERNATIVE READING
It has never been so easy to expand out understanding of issues, through reading contrasting viewpoints as it is today. The Net offers us a chance to see beyond the narrow focus of our local newspaper, probably owned by a huge conglomerate much more interested in the 'bottom line' than in the truth.. here's a few examples of alternative sources of info:
Poe News - seems pretty good - anti-authoritarian in tone, but without always coming down strictly to the 'left' or 'right'. I was pleased to see in today's issue that they had taken the BBC to task for self-censoring a documentary which included a segment on the growing problem of sexual abuse of white children by Asian males in West Yorkshire, in order to 'not inflame racial tensions'..
Privacy International . Personally, I think it's a lost cause, unless you're willing to live in the woods. But you can find all the depressing details here of HOW it's being lost..
World Net Daily - "..to the Right,Right,Right!"
Counterpunch "..and the Left, Left, Left!"
And nothing but the truth: Nexus
All men are frauds. The only difference between them is that some admit it. I myself deny it.
