    manufacture the scandals and modern media manufactures the consent from its consumers. (ht Chomsky)

    I think it has come to pass that there is no more citizenship in this country given the broad lack of meaningful and tangible representation. This is a nation of consumers. The less you are able to consume the less power you have. The less you consent to the manufactured constructs (kabuki theater), or in other words, the more you dissent, the less power you have.

    It seems to me that democracy is over for the most part

    Society is like a stew. If you don't stir it up every once in a while then a layer of scum floats to the top. ~Edward Abbey
