56 reasons to be grateful for blogs

Published 07th December 2009 - 1 comments - 836 views -

Hemant has already pointed out that 56 newspapers are running a common front-page editorial today saying we have "Fourteen days to seal history's judgment on this generation". Whatever that means. This is more proof, as if more were needed, of why the term "mass media" is both accurate and Orwellian.

But, at least, we do have the comfort of blogs where the herd mentality is unknown and independent thinking blooms. 

"If large numbers of people believe in freedom of speech, there will be freedom of speech even if the law forbids it. But if public opinion is sluggish, inconvenient minorities will be persecuted, even if laws exist to protect them." George Orwell

In the Czech Republic the media do not inform about Climategate at all. If it were not for bloggers like me, citizens would know nothing.
