Blogging, Polls and the Youth of Alberta


The ring of the tolling bell continues to be heard after the awakening poll was published by the Western Standard a short time ago.

Kevin Steel makes the comment that the separatist movement is becoming characterized by those, "too young to be nursing any grudges over the National Energy Program" (see here).

Part of the rise in the number of '20-30 somethings' who share separatist sentiments may be due to the availablity of new technology. Today, rapid information collection and response is the bread-and-butter of many young Albertans. They are doing their own research and drawing their own conclusions---independently. Only an older, non-tech savvy generation is beholden to the MSM [Mainstream Media] produced in Toronto.

This phenomenon is not isolated to Alberta, but is part of the changing landscape of public discourse everywhere. 'Blogging' is inaugurating a transformation of society unseen since the days of Gutenberg's press ( See Hugh Hewitt's book, Blog: Understanding the Information Reformation That's Changing Your World). As young Albertans harness the power of the blogosphere, the propaganda machines of the Mothercorp and her clones will not be able to quell the mounting tide of righteous indignation.
