Will You Stand

When the media is democratized and as the corporate control over information wanes, we will see a new media which will shift the power of information from the hands of a few into the hands of the many. Exposing abuse and crimes within governments and corporations is now an act of heroism. Transparency is the new norm in the 21st Century, and authoritarianism and deceit will soon exist only in the 20th Century history books. You will not find this transition of power on any of the corporate/political controlled media outlets. You will find this revolution right here in the notes, videos, blogs, and alternative people powered media. You will find the masses of concerned and active people who are struggling for change in the Tweets on your screens and in the streets of your cities. Will you stand?

I will stand with you – Will you stand with me
We will be the change that we hope to see
In the name of love – in the name of peace
Will you stand, will you stand with me

When injustice raises up its fist
And fights to stop us in our tracks
We will rise and as one resist
No fear nor sorrow can turn us back

I will stand with you – Will you stand with me
We will be the change that we hope to see
In the name of love – in the name of peace
Will you stand, will you stand with me.


Thanks to Amy Carol Webb for the inspirational song Stand.

I would love to believe that a social revolution of sorts will be effected by the power of the net, letting the 'little man' speak as loudly as the conglomerate news agencies. But I have my doubts as we see again and again large companies rein in control of it. They call it "Net Neutrality" or because that term is garnering bad press, a new slogan will be proffered. I truly pray that I am wrong, but when there is money to be thrown around, it will be thrown into a wind that returns it to the same pockets.

You know what they say Bro, where there is a will. I believe the power of the net has already pushed us in the direction we need to go. Whether the web and phone services are blocked or not, the spark has already been struck and people will find a way to circumvent control. When the situation becomes darkest is when the people's spirit soars the brightest. I have always had faith in the people, always will. :-)
