So many people have sent this to me - I've received around 5 or six copies of this email from my very aware and very motivated friends. Please don't be offended if you are one of them... I am an internet nerd after all, and I look up everything I receive - even if it's from my dear old Dad.
However, while I'm a pretty strong advocate for grassroots activism, and while I am quite the tree-hugger, and I always support efforts to communicate with the controlling big businesses in this world, this particular email, while a good idea in theory, could in some ways actually worsen the problem... I found the analysis at the end of this article to be particularly insightful. (Click this post's Title)
I am thrilled, however, to know so many of my friends are conscious citizens who care about making a difference! Let's keep our eyes open, our dollars working for change, and our elected officials held responsible!
