I wonder sometimes. Everyone is so jaded, myself included. Why? Then something goes and reminds me. The WTO protest in Seattle. The public shrugs off apathy for once to display its opinion in a 99% non-violent manner. The media takes the 1% of vandalism, turns the non-violent protest into a "riot". The police use the media generated riot to declare the equivilant of martial law. Watching cops tear gas and pepper spray compeltely passive people makes my blood boil. Watching the media misrepresent something that you have seen with your own eyes to the public makes me feel so cheated and screwed over. Once again the government and corporate america have gone and fucked the people over, and though it sounds so cliche, its the truth.
