Imagine, if all the American colonialists could have watched Patrick Henry deliver his famous speech via web cam:

“Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

Our red coated friends from across the pond might have high tailed it back to their ships and sailed home without a fight.

Never before in history have we had so many powerful tools at our fingertips, tools which individuals can be use to communicate, organize, unite, mobilize, etc.  Never before have we had so much access to information and education.  People worry about technology’s ability to give governments’ greater control, but what about the new power and liberty such technology delivers to the individual?  I believe it far out paces the increasingly snoopy eye of the government.

Several in the VisionForce community have begun setting in motion plans to use tools such as video blogging to share their stories, their vision and the actions they’re taking to be the change they seek, and to change the world.

Imagine… training young people from China, Africa, India and all over the world in the ways of the visionary for free–straight from a web cam!  That and more is just around the corner.  Shhhhhh….

    I, too, find myself lamenting over the unnecessary media overload. In days gone by, it took days–even weeks or months–for news to travel across this country. So in a time, when I can see what is happening this very moment halfway round the globe–I say it is too much. BUT–what if the same technology were used to broadcast peaceful and positive activities? What if the “spin” weren’t so negative? I, for one, think it is time for a little “reverse propaganda”–letting the daily news be about “we the people”. Any one else for a grass roots media effort?
