All my life I have always heard and believed that information is power. I have witnessed this several times, whether it be in combat tactics or business.
Having said that... Since we are in what is called the INFORMATION AGE it appears that people are not capable of consuming, reacting or processing this new power.
The country is more divided by income and politics, racial issues, more copycat acts of violence, less focus on those in need locally and more focus on countries and problems that have nothing to do with the outcome of your own community....
Now combine all of that POWER/Information with all of these new mind-altering drugs that have come out in conjunction and WTF do you expect? Peace? Harmony? HAHA! We get bullets, bombs, rapes, suicides, overdoses and broken families.
