IAN: The power of a right idea properly presented is
more powerful than lots of money and The Powers That
Be that have it. Of course, the ability of bad ideas
to overcome good ideas by lots of money is still there.

One can show that the best case out of a set of cases
is that the Govt, the "The Power That Is," killed the
230 people found dead, and because it IS the best case
out of a set of cases, many people will believe it and
then the "power of a right idea" wins! But The Powers
That Be aren't going to take it sitting down. Their
money can reach 1000x more people than the little guy
with the right idea, and with that extra power they
can pound the little guy into the ground with false
and misleading information. I know this first hand.

So it could be that Power CAN defeat right ideas.
BUT, I found that it was believing that that gave
the Power its power over me, since I tried to run
from the power, and that was a nearly fatal error.
I think that pessimism feeds and fulfills itself.
If you think all hope is lost, THEN it will be.
