Recently I was told by a friend of mine to look into the subject of “Icelandic Revolution” and give them my thoughts about the subject. I assumed that such a subject would be from close to World War II era or earlier and be about how some kind of amazing feat allowed them to overthrow the government and establish a government of the people. Well I was partly correct. There was indeed a revolution, but it was a peaceful one and had gone on in the last five years. I was shocked that I had heard nothing about this. The media had clearly gone out of their way to not talk about this story.
After searching a bit more about subject, I saw that there were articles about this peaceful revolution by the mainstream media, but were almost hidden. They were available on the website, but had never made it to any front page, and no large writers were talking about it. It was as if they were trying to make it available so they couldn’t be blamed for not covering it, yet most readers would never see it. It really was a great way to cover their asses.
When I got back to my friend about what I had read he told me that’s exactly what he had felt. Lied to. I hope that you will take the time to look into this for yourself. Below I will list a handful of links that i found useful while researching the topic.
Thank you, happy holidays, and stay informed!
