    I just see people mostly complaining or resigning themselves to living in the country as it declines and not being able to do anything about it, if they are aware. That awareness, itself, however,is exceptionally rare. I can't even really say I am surprised. Its hard to deal with cold reality, and lies can be very comfortable.

      go to even start to challenge the powers that be? They are quite entrenched and their power quite awesome.  who are any of us, individually?  How do we start to become a collective force?  The political parties have sold us into slavery.  The vast majority of us don't belong to unions. Unions are completely ineffectual or in on the games of the rich and powerful even if you are a member.  Where is the institution through which we can organize to fight "them"?

      The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama
