Aaron rounds off the Virtually There series (for now) with this look at the alt media/Truth Movement.

What is it that we should individually believe in, and what should we be doing in order to make things better?
topics include: massive change, no identity, Obama’s campaign slogan, anti-establishment election year, frustration, mainstream media, alternative media, what constitutes a victory for alt media, goals of truth movement, how to replace old system, return to past, not about solutions, suggestibility, conspiracy theories in mainstream media, trust no one, nothing to believe in, destroy and rebuild, right-wing extremism, fascism, overcoming confusion, regaining philosophy, put into a reactionary state
