Why Is Mainstream American News Ignoring Iceland?

As most of us are aware, the world has been rather hesitant by most and resistant by many about our views and dismisses us mainly as a bunch of kooks who don't get it. Mainstream religious people have a real push on to try to get people to ignore us and try to discredit us since we don't have a "spook in the sky" God like they do because according to their thinking (or lack thereof) we don't qualify as a real religion. We don't have a bible or any kind of main religious book that we can all point to and argue about it's principles like they do. We don't identify with any main deities that we pray to for the right to say we are the "right kind" of people and forgiveness from our "sins". We don't even have a system of sins or a guy who sits on a cloud, in a throne, keeping score like some cosmic Santa Clause ("He knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you're awake. He knows when you've been bad or good so be good for goodness sake.") who is going to ban us from the spiritual afterlife party in the sky because we know we need to refrain from being evil for the sake of being a non-evil, less selfish person just because it is the right thing to do instead of out of fear of going to "the other place" which in our ancient mythology, we could match or beat anything they came up with in theirs. I mean, how can that work? Just WANTING TO BE a good person, after all, who does that kind of stuff and who believes that will work? Gandhi, Albert Schweitzer, Mother Teresa, Father John Aquinas?
Right now we have been somewhat isolated and ignored or completely rebuked and blocked from giving a message that we know makes more sense, we should know how Iceland feels. They had a "secret"(?)revolution to most of us, anyway. The fact that the news media here doesn't want us to read this makes me think that the mainstream news is thinking one of two things: 1) That we may follow suit so they don't want us to know what actually works when you refuse to buckle to the foreign banks, OR 2) That they are so busy chasing the latest (squirrel) story that ran by and distracted by only local news that they completely ignored a human interest story that rivals the fall of either Cuba or The Soviet Union. There is an article on this story athttp://sacsis.org.za/site/article/728.1 .
