    those who have the greatest influence on the established mainstream culture, and their ardent supporters, allow it to be. There are many things they could choose to change but do not because the status quo is too comfortable and confrontation and real change too uncomfortable.

    The establishment defenders own the mainstream culture, which now includes surveillance. They are responsible, whether they choose to accept it or not. Just as they own the concentration of wealth, the foreclosure travesty,  climate change, drones, etc. It is their abject failure to reject these things and their supporters and instead to support those who resist and rebel that makes these things possible.

    The reason the 1% is so powerful is that 99% of the 99% has a sleeping sickness. ☮ ♥ ☺
