“The MPSC says citizens have a choice. But choosing between having electricity or not having electricity, as hundreds of people in the 7th District and across the state are finding out, is no real choice at all. It is coercion.” More ————————————————————————————-
OCTOBER 14TH – A CRITIQUE OF ‘InPower’ EPISODE ONE by Warren Woodward. Josh is a good filmmaker. Take Back Your Power was a great, fact-based tool for awakening people. But this one — and I will back this up with specifics — is propaganda. I would love for the theory it espouses to work, but I don’t think it will or has. More

“Privacy is the right to the self. Privacy is what
gives you the ability to share with the world who

what we’re losing is the ability to make mistakes.
We’re losing the ability to be ourselves.”
