Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Very insightful commentary. I'd just add to the part about the government representing me: I'm not anywhere near normal, and I suspect most of the people populating Eurotrib and the like aren't either.

That's the mastodon in the public square: normal people are so easy to manipulate (Farmville, anyone?), AND aware/alert people who want their civil privileges (I don't call them "rights" anymore) are really so few in number relative to them asses that the democracy we've got is a miracle of jury-rigged responses to greed, as it is.

Our democracy is a few greedy people in power manipulating the masses against the intelligent few. Sounds snooty and elitist, but ain't that the way it goes...

Align culture with our nature. Ot else!
