    When you visualize changes for the betterment of mankind.
    Tell whomever will listen.
    Seek a venue for your Manifesto.

    Then use it to tell, -- like this 'sample Manifesto'...
    Hey guys and gals, listen up !!!
    Here in America, like most of today's sophisticated democratic nations,
    the media is controlled by political parties, who share the government.

    A simple strategy. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out.
    when the only gossip you hear and see is from your radio, tv, or internet,
    and the commentators are arguing about the same bad guys vs good ones,
    choices are simple. Pick one. The political party's leaders don't care.
    Remember the two parties share the government.

    When times are good, food's always on the table, and when times are hard,
    food stamps and welfare kicks in. Why rock the boat?

    Of course this is just a sample Manifesto.
    A real Manifesto gets no radio time, no tv time, and no internet time.
    A real Manifesto gets a 'Soap-Box in the Park'.
