Our media is mired in cynicism,
regardless of the label of mainstream or alternative.
Sadly, it is what seems to drive the news.
People flock to the latest disaster, scenario of hopelessness,
or individual story that proves things can get so much worse for us . . .
The media preys on our instinct of self-preservation,
rather than promote this instinct
as an example of what drives us toward self-empowerment.
We’d like to present an overview of issues
demonstrating that all is not lost.
Just the opposite, in fact.
