It's not banal when the Agnostic is trying to say in a politically correct way:
"You have no evidence for your religion, despite searching for it, but it could totally still be true, the reality is that I Don't give a shit about it, so let's talk about something else"

People know what they're getting into when they purchase a Religion. I'm not so sure what know about Homeopathy.

Not everything is money.
Median income is not such a bad indicator if you consider that services provided by the state can push up people living standard.
ie, a poor person in the U.S. won't have access to healthcare (at lest the segment not covered by obamacare) or third level education.

For a lot of people internet = facebook.

Google's business model biggest enemy is Facebook because it's a closed.
That means there is a huge chunk of the internet that can't be indexed, and lots of eyeballs that won't ever be theirs.

Promoting "open" social networking is good for them.

The math is not so easy, you need to consider the risk of being robbed vs the chance of being seized by the government.
And the main reason people don't have their money in banks is not because they're afraid of the government ( people tend to forget about the pain ), but because tax evasion and informal economy.

Yes there is a helluva of Argentinians that don't agree, that's because Argentina is a big country.
But the voices of people that reach other countries are from the upper classes. They should at least speak english, have internet access/be able to travel outside of the country, and give some shit on the international view of Argentina's economy.
This people are the same subset affected by the dollar restriction, so you get biased sample pool...

To give you an scale, this news looks to me like someone saying that Tea Party represents 30% of US.

And, at some level, I believe the same thing happens with international news regarding Venezuela.

Always look over your shoulder because everyone is watching and plotting against you.
