Truth rings hollow in empty heads.
Truth is not necessarily attained when you tire of SEARCHING!
I don't know, maybe something positive could happen. But I really do not trust government to police itself. I think they like to say the words, but words are wind. I'll believe this when I see large scale enforcement.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Such a huge change of heart and on such a massive and unanimous scale smells of foul play. I do tend to lean to the skeptic side in most things, though.
One who makes himself a worm cannot complain when tread upon.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
