8. From the "Comments"

The corporate take over the state is complete. It has been for some time. Elections are all prepackaged show biz glitz without any substance whatsoever. Congress spends all their time raising money for re-election, so legislation is written by corporate lobbyists. The news media has become a cheerleader for wealth, greed, and corporate control. The police have become tools of the military. The Pentagon spends millions every year on developing weapons to crush "urban unrest." It is not just the government that needs to protested against, it is an entire society. The "Greed is Good" culture needs to be overthrown. It cannot be done without massive numbers of people willing to put everything on the line. And so, in the US, it cannot be done.
