    I was thinking the same about how nice it is to be able to discuss this stuff without it descending into insanity.

    The problem probably is a matter of balance. And will, of course.

      I had to step away because company came, but we're in the same mental space when you mention "will."  Problem:  how does power derive from the People, as it was intended, if our will is subverted through secret programs, secret courts, secret interpretations of law?  Problem:  How do we express and implement our will when these programs, courts and interpretations of law are already operational to the degree that they are?  Essentially, our power has been usurped; let's hope we can get it back.

      It was pleasant talking with you, too.
