The news that the UK government has called a halt to fracking in England (it has already been halted by the assemblies of Wales and Scotland) exemplifies this datum:
Government will act on an issue IF there is a coherent, coordinated demand from the People that it do so.
Without a coherent demand from the people that applies MORE pressure on it in a particular direction than that supplied by various vested interests pushing it in a different, or even opposite, direction, it will more often than not comply with the vested interests.
Power is directed, channelled energy. Dispersed energy, no matter how great in volume, cannot exert power.
Vested interests, able to direct and focus their energy, thereby leverage the power to steer government.
To the degree that We, The People are unable to direct and focus our far greater, yet dispersed, energy we remain without power to influence government.
We, The People, comprise potentially the most powerful pressure group in existence. If we were ever able to unite behind and direct our energies/efforts towards agreed-upon humanitarian, survival goals, we would be unstoppable. And we would all win.
The would-be exploiters and slavers of Man know and fear this truth and it is the reason they work to keep us disunited, divided, conflicted, afraid and in disarray.
To the anti-fracking campaigners and activists, to the like-minded concerned citizens of affected local communities and those in the media who helped forward their message – and indeed to the government ministers who listened – we owe a big THANK YOU for the example they have set.
Let’s build upon it.
Unite and win!

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
