Values Ethics & Morality

It isn't the I-pad that makes things happen, it's the idea. While the invention of the blog platform made it possible for 'bloggers of resistance' to communicate with a mass audience, it was the 2003 'Green Zone' war-profiteering that inspired them to write. Likewise in the wake of the 2008-2009 Wall Street bailout--leading to the 2010 mass foreclosures and evictions--citizen journalists attacked the corporate establishment online. The 2012 #Occupy campaign exposed the culprits.

With the 2016 socialist revolution--ignited by the Bernie Sanders campaign--the launch of The Intercept by Glenn Greenwald and a new wave of independent reporters are prompting the discussion of values, ethics and morality, especially as applied to the central conflict between indigenous nations and modern states.
