  •  We're going to have politicians no matter what. (0+ / 0-)

    And they are going to be a measure of corrupt, because that's the nature of people who seek power and wealth. Has been through all of recorded history; always will be.

    So the question is: how do you minimize their corruption and maximize the people's benefit?

    Public pressure. Always has been the way; always will be.

    Then, the question is: how to make effective protest?

    That's what the essay is about. It's not about "how corrupt exactly are politicians?" nor is it about "but what about the next generation of politicians." It's about how to make effective protest, given the objective circumstances and history.

    Markos! Not only are the Gates Not Crashed, they've fallen on us. Actual Representatives are what we urgently need, because we have almost none.
