Refusing to accept the supreme court's decision is one possible form of the political crisis I'm referring to.

The closer the politicians get to the local level the more the the more the public holds them accountable, IMO, and the banks don't own the state houses the way they own Washington.

Of all the passivity in the face of erosion of freedom during the Bush years - those losses were entirely abstract for the majority of the population. Americans have never lived under Franco or Pinochet. This is different - losing your home because the bank feels like taking it is 100% real and drops a nuclear bomb on the social contract.

you are the media you consume.
