As we all should be aware of, the Information Super-Highway is most certainly a double-edged sword.
Valuable information that can be of benefit to all people is disseminated immediately.
Genuine news stories, no pap, are available to anyone with a mobile device. You don’t need to wait for a newspaper or magazine any longer. The biggest advantage the Internet provides to modern patriots is that it has broken the stranglehold that the old media had on what was or was not reported to the masses.
That’s the good news.
The other edge of the Internet sword is the speed and snowball effect of rumors, lies, and disinformation. And, like it or not, bad news and/or conspiracies fly faster from the keyboards of malcontents than any good or positive news ever will. People can’t seem to hit the “forward” or “post” button fast enough when they think they have a juicy piece of gossip or a conspiracy.
In the current climate, on one side of the argument you have a coalition attempting to force disarmament down the throats of the people. They are organized and have a definitive playbook from which they operate. In general, the patriots and those devoted to the founding principles of the nation recognized the other side. These same patriots are also extremely distrustful of any company or company representative who is perceived as being friendly or cooperative to the opposition.
