    I believe that the government is not separable from the governed.  Pretending that we are governed by some "other" -- be it secret organizations or evil aliens -- is only an excuse to not put in the work needed to make government better.  Like it or not, in America there is no line between "us" and "them."

    I have been working on a diary on exactly this topic.  It goes back to a conversation I had with my mother after Christmas.

    The President, who you voted for, has told you that stacking naked men into pyramids and sending pictures to their families will make you safer.  Do you honestly believe that?  These actions were taken in your name.
