You talk on the internet of politics. You debate, you discuss, you tweet, you flame. And it's all so cute, really. As if any of that matters. You spread information to educate others. The problem isn't that people are ignorant of these things. They're not.(and those that are have purposedly walled themselves in there and will not change; the purpose of Fox is not brainwashing but a fantasyland to enter) The problem is not that they lack the will.
The problem is that your opinion doesn't make a difference. The internet and places to comment are there to keep alive the illusion we can change anything important, but having a voice doesn't matter.
You can march in the streets, camp out in parks. Still doesn't matter. Being an inconvenience will not change anything. What exactly did Occupy change? You can vote. The government still does need at least the pretext of your consent, as though it were the trembly signature of a senile rich grandparent whose Social Security check you're stealing.
If someone who can make a difference does by chance get in, they will be prevented form actually doing so, but will be favorite guests on MSNBC.
So everyone talk amongst yourselves. You wouldn't be allowed to do it if it changed anything truly important or fundamental.
