"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

The Left have the TV. We're winning on the internet. What next?

Inspired by a post I read over at Marcellus' place, I wondered; what can we anti-authoritarians actually do, beyond what we're doing now? It's been noted by several that the small-c conservative / libertarian types have a big presence on the internet, but can't seem to get much support or coverage elsewhere. Marcellus gives a very good explanation as to why that is.

So I wondered, what is the next step? It's obvious the Left can't compete with what I loosely describe as the "right wing" blogosphere without large amounts of funding. But they do own broadcast media. Do we even need a next step, given that the eeeeeevil "far right" blogosphere put a sizeable dent in the climate change "consensus" just lately?

Thoughts please! Where next? What do you think? Personally I think it's a discussion worth having, so go forth and tell me exactly what you think on this global warming affected Monday night ;-)

  1. I think we just carry on with much of the same. The Libertarian blogospherites are now setting the agenda for the MSM and the MSM are increasingly aware of it. How many times have blogposts preceded the MSM in recent months? Trafigura, and Climategate, to just name two instances.

  2. They can't abide people having the "audacity" to disagree with them, so they'll cut us off from The Internet.

    The UN is already starting up on this front.

  3. I've noticed murmurings about restricting internet access. Fortunately, there are ways and means of web hosting at home ;-) And also, if we were all to get to know each other, we could always blog by email. That'd take some spyware!

    See you on Hotmail ;-)

  4. If it ever gets to that stage we won't be the blogosphere any more we will be something like the resistance in the film Matrix. Take the red pill! who wants to be Morpheus?

  5. The next step is an online magazine to bring all thse issues together and we need an awkward squad who can doorstep politicians for interviews.They should be made to answer questions that the msm won't ask them.
    recently an IPPR survey on the English question was sent out to all mp's, only 114 responded.
    These gutless wonders can chisel taxpayers money when they fill out their expenses forms but hold their constituents in contemt.
