Did you know that there was a successful peaceful revolution in Iceland? It’s true. But you wouldn’t know from watching TV.
In 2008, the people of Iceland forced their prime minister and his whole government to resign. Next, they nationalized the banks & opted not to pay back the fake debt created by foreign bankers. Next, they created a public assembly to rewrite their constitution. And all of this in a peaceful way.
The people of Iceland have proven to the world that there is a way to dismantle the system while preserving peace & democracy.

If this happened 200 or even 100 years ago, it would be the biggest story of the decade. We’d still be learning about it in school and the Icelandic people would be praised as heroes. 
Today, it’s not even discussed on CNN, Fox msNBC and it barely even makes a dent on the radar of the new-age, non-traditional internet media.
