Reforming media for public participation

LA Times recently tried putting out their editorial as a Wiki - a page that anybody can edit.

Here, Greg W Brooks comment on the the idea, with tie-ins to present political participation, the functioning of media, and a suggestion for how to get people to participate - productively. Way to go!

(outlink) Rick Ross on mind control

Rick Ross is one of the leading cult researchers (and "cult deprogrammers").

He's got a lot of information on "mind control", including how abusive and controlling relationships work and brainwashing.

One more angle towards understanding how people work.

(outlink) Routines collection

BG pointed out


routine page. He's collected over 50 routines, more than enough to get anybody started.

Of course, I still recommend viewing routines mostly as training wheels - they're there to make sure you always have something to say, and as you become more relaxed, you'll always have something to say naturally, and can drop the routines.

Oh, and he's got a bunch of other interesting stuff on his site. Worth checking out even if you're off routines.
