What is it going to take for concerned and engaged citizens to finally feel as though some crucial threshold has been crossed—that our nation’s political system and the global corporate culture it both serves and feeds into will never represent them or serve their needs?

  15. Exceptionally clear and unemotionally delivered
    (as opposed to the emotionality of cable news and many columnists).

    Repeatedly ratting emotions is the first step in brainwashing. Confuse, disorient, leave them hanging.

    Power-over is in its last throes!

  16. Personal Involvement. The lawmakers’ Personal Loss due to power taken from them by the Corporatocracy.

    That is why there hasn’t been an outcry (like that of birth-pangs): because ‘what it will take’ has never changed. ‘Personal Involvement’ was ALWAYS the deciding factor!

    Just like people don’t care how high the National Debt gets because they’ll be ‘irrelevant’ by the time it comes-due.

    That’s why “no one wants to live forever”: Because it means living thru the effects you cause!

    • “(like that of birth-pangs)” Oh, I beg to differ–that’s exactly what this process we are experiencing is! It’s scary, painful, and perhaps some of us will die (humans are known to die one way and another). No one generation makes or breaks the stream of the universe! Living is streaming energies beyond finite manipulation.

      “Just like people don’t care how high the National Debt gets because they’ll be ‘irrelevant’ by the time it comes-due.” Again I disagree: It’s because MONEY is ultimately irrelevant to life! It’s a “middle man feature” imposed by humans long ago as part of the power-over theme. Integral is how the universe works, and we are used to conducting dualistically, as in “right/wrong, good/bad, cause/effect, young/old/ etc.”
