The Rise of Ron Paul Proves That The Establishment Media is Not All Powerful

In 2011, “the person who controls communications” can be a blogger with a million readers, a multinational CEO with newspapers in several countries, or an online news anchor with a million dollar studio.

Believe it or not, bloggers and online journalists can change the world. We are not laboring in vain. We are helping to establish a much-needed political dialogue between the West and the East which can lead to a genuine and just peace in the future.

Peace in the Middle East cannot be achieved without dialogue and debate.

Online civil society has a great and historic responsibility to use the power of a free press to create understanding and peace, because the establishment media has used its power to create misunderstanding and war.

Bloggers and online news anchors are undermining the power of anti-democratic elites from America to the Middle East by opening up the worldwide debate about the 9/11 attacks and the global war on terror. They are giving free speech a chance.

In America, silencing patriots like Ron Paul is a lot harder than it was in 1988, when he first ran for President, because of the Internet Revolution. Dr. Paul’s rise would not have been possible without blogs, alternative news sites, message boards, YouTube, online fundraising drives, and online news anchors like Alex Jones who spread the word.

The editors of The Daily Bell have written consistently about the transformative power of the Internet and how it will change national and global politics. In November, they wrote:

The power elite virtually controlled the flow of information in the 20th century and in the 21st they’ve lost this ability. They have lost their information monopoly thanks to the Internet. This is a devastating blow.

The response by dictatorships to the Internet has been the same: Kill it,before it destroys us.

Dictatorships in Washington, Beijing, Tehran, Tel Aviv, and London are losing credibility with their people and their solutions are tyranny at home and war abroad.

They’re scared because they know the game is up. Slavery and death is all they know, and all they can offer.

As the liberating power of the Internet continues to manifest itself, citizens around the world will be offered new narratives of history, and alternative futures.

The world is wide open. We are entering a period of flux in which these dark dictatorships will either evolve or collapse. So far, it appears they will all go the way of the Soviet Union.
