The root cause compressed into a bumper sticker

We're not all self absorbed selfish mean scumbags. That's only the bullies that run everything now.

The rest of us are pretty normal and have been responding well to the corporate conditioning we're swimming in designed to make us all believe we are all utterly powerless.

So we are.

In spite of what the great Chris Hedges has said, something like; "It only takes engagement of ONE PERCENT of the population to trigger a revolution." Chris should know, he's covered such revolutions in Eastern Europe before he got canned by the NY Times cuz he was anti-2003-Iraq-invasion.

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland. OUR INSTITUTIONS ARE INFESTED WITH GREEDY AND CORRUPT SOCIOPATHS
