77. True Information and exposure to differing viewpoints.
IF Americans are regularly exposed to this, they will become receptive and curious. Look at how the propaganda quickly became the "truth." If, through the FD, the "accepted wisdom" is proven false and people are routinely exposed to the uncensored views of many intelligent people, hopefully, Americans will see and work for the real needs of Americans. IMO, they would shortly demand it.

If I, as a non-Union carpenter for 15 or so years, had been exposed to the reality of what the Union could help you obtain, instead of weekly anti-Union meetings that were given us because of the GREED of our

employers, I would have joined the Union at least a decade before I did. I was (for my occupation) an educated person. Yet, I accepted the non-Union propaganda for years because I was in fear of my job, I felt

that I wasn't skilled enough to be at that level, yet I wanted the pay and benefits for my family. Actually, after showing 5 continuous years of construction W-2's and a four hour test, I was rated a Journeyman

In all categories. IMO, if people are shown the real roadblocks to their success (and their countries success) and exposed to the solutions, honestly, then, at least, they are more prepared and aware. That makes them

believe "if only", which should lead to the "big leap" that helps force politicians to shit or get of the pot. Government does create jobs. They have toolboxes full of tools that are available to push business' into doing the right things for America.
