Send Freedom ViralSubmitted by jim on Fri, 2010-11-12 15:00
At Intellectual Takeout, we think it's about time freedom went viral.
Before our generation is the opportunity to embrace freedom, to unleash each individual's potential, and to have a prosperous future. And yet it seems that almost everyone running our cities, states, and federal government is intent on destroying freedom and burying us in debt to pay for it.
If you, like us, believe that freedom is the better way forward, you need to change the environment you are in. We're not asking you to ditch school or leave your job for the cause, but simply to educate those around you.
At the top of nearly every page on the site, you will see the opportunity to share what you're reading or viewing:
Through the "Share" buttons you can log in to almost any social media site out there in order to post information and to spread the ideas of freedom.
Every time you see something you like on this site, blast it out to your friends, family, coworkers, and classmates through e-mail, instant messaging, Facebook, Twitter, your blog, and any other social media network you use. To learn more about using social media, go here.
For the first time in human history, each one of us has the opportunity to go around the establishment to communicate with friends, family, associates, and total strangers. In this world, it's the power of our ideas and our ability to communicate them that matters. If you want to be free, if you want to take back your future, you have no better opportunity than now.
