Subject: RE: BS: What the world thinks of America
Well, when a political system is carefully arranged so that those with the most money control the media, the major political parties, the main institutions, and the firepower....what do you expect?
It's the same game that has been played ever since ancient Rome and Babylon. If you can make people think they have democracy while you treat them like children, so much the better.
One can a good life not because of the political system, but in spite of it...if one knows how to. I don't expect much from politicians, generally speaking. I know the $ySStem that has them in its clutches too well for that.
