Parent Article: The DNC: To Protest or not to Protest.

Re: The DNC: To Protest or not to Protest.
19 Feb 2004
The longer people do not participate in politics and solely participate in economics, the more centralized power becomes for those who control the market. I wonder if the media is promoting the message of 'you are powerless, nothing you can do will help, one man one vote gets you squat.' And by doing such they further squelch any popular movement that may be left after people get home from a day of work or shopping (read snide tone). Personal freedom, economic freedom, interrelational freedom all seem to be on the decline but people have the most sophisticated tools for communication ever devised. We are beginning to live in an oligarchy and people don't know how to be citizens. Sadly, we have to market participation to start the work. And we can hope that after the buy in, people will understand freedom.
