Since trust plays a big factor in listening to what we're being told, corporations have the responsibility to provide messages that are both accurate and in the best interests of their audiences. Time and time again, however, we see the power of suggestion being used in a misguided and sometimes even destructive way.
I'll admit. Saying I didn't realize it is probably inaccurate and a little bit insulting to the level of my intelligence. So. How does one fairly level-headed, zero-bullshit, astutely self-aware human not fully grasp the fact that what she is experiencing is harassment?

While our tech giants might stonewall the U.S. government in its efforts to keep tabs on its citizens, it violates the privacy of those very citizens every day for profit, and no one can stop them.

Kodak was in the business of capturing memories and their particular method was film. Then, the unthinkable happened: a giant fell. A similar story is now unfolding in the energy sector. The quicker we acknowledge the reality of climate change and unburnable carbon, the sooner we'll innovate and develop low carbon solutions to export to others.
With the disastrous release of Kindle Fire Phone and the utterly ignorable Echo, it seems Amazon has lost its way.
Even with all the shouting between sides, we're still not discussing the real issue: The US has no comprehensive energy policy, and we stumble, under the terrible lack of leadership in Washington, from crisis to crisis with little effort to reduce our overall demand for heavy hydrocarbons such as crude and coal.
There is some truth to Jonathan Gruber's comment in that most people are ill-informed about major public policy issues. This is in large part due to the fact that, unlike Gruber, most people have day jobs. But even worse, when people do take the time to get informed, the media let them down badly.
I had the possibility to find a pattern in the strategies that these leaders put into place that produced a big difference in the outcome of a crisis. I have tracked them and put them into practice through out the years and have found that they are quite efficient.
