I agree it's big but it was brought on slowly turning up the heat a little at a time much like the boiling frog. There is still a little time for us to get away from the boiling water but we need to educate ourselves on the issues. It all boils down to one principle: Control of the people through scare tactics for corporate, political and ideological gains. Once we have learned to recognize this the similarities of the issues become very obvious. The pattern and the reasons behind them are all the same. Knowledge is power and as people are getting educated (thanks to the internet) more power is transferred to the people, a little at a time.
