    It sounds like all semblance of democracy in this country is disappearing before our eyes.

    Up until the turn of the last century, the erosion of both our civil rights and citizen access to our elected representatives in general went slowly, incrementally, so we wouldn't notice it. Mesmerized by both the wonder of the latest technological advances and the corporate-controlled infotainment media culture; we never even saw it coming.

    But since '2000 all that has changed. The aforementioned erosion process has gone from granny gear to overdrive. Now, politicians are for the most part inaccessible, and the notion of privacy -- in both the virtual world and actual meat-bag existence -- disappeared without a trace.

    It's no longer our government. Therefore, its participants now exist in a state of sequestration. That way they can work for their corporate overlords in peace, without hindrance from the serfs.

    "That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons of history." ~ Aldous Huxley
