    It's hard to pin down what is at the very root of a society losing interest in their government and thus control.  Sloth? Ignorance?  Both? You are right that the propaganda/shock-jock syndrome started under Clinton and has since flourished.  Now it is considered "journalism." IMO, the media conglomeration and shift to a caustic "journalism" style is the root of the lean toward fascism.

    I also agree that NAFTA and the Telecomm. Act were alarm bells that Clinton was part of the status quo and not against it, yet we still don't hear any significant dialogue about these two egregious bills and their long-lasting effects.
