    a huge problem that is not unique just to American society. People feel extremely disconnected from social institutions. And the Internet enables them to connect to each other to share those feelings.

    This is where the paranoia comes from. I don't trust the government, I feel that I have no voice in it, my life is getting worse, and I resent the people in government who are trying to control my life. And it's long been just beneath the surface of Republican politics.  The Internet has merely allowed it to speak its name more.

    The ironic thing is that their anger is misdirected, because national governments are becoming increasingly powerless up against corporate power and global trade agreements.  But it's the job of the Kochs and that crowd to keep that a secret.
