6. "What do you want to do?" Excellent question! Often, in many areas today, the masses have

less and less of a voice IMO. Politicians, Institutions, Corporations, MIC, Police, etc. are often one seamless front. The masses elect politicians who often misrepresent them, and/or are elected via false rhetoric.

Then, we have the "deer in the headlight" segment of voters that never know what's going on. Probably one factor that's happening today is more awareness due to more effective communications ... of course working to counter truth is often MSM.

It's a turbulent brew. Too many work their way to the top of the heap with absolutely no altruism in mind at all.

I think much of it boils down to local elections. All individuals need to pay close attention to who is being elected and what they really stand for ... for example, in this area, the republicans have instituted voting for judges. Voting for judges gets difficult, trying to figure out who they are, many skip voting for judges. The R's know this, so they are voting in RW R judges while the masses don't bother often to vote for judges. Also, there was a state rating agency for judges, but here the republicans eliminated that agency ... so most voters have no idea what is going on when it comes to voting for judges. ... just one example.
