We have spent all of our "political capital" in the worlds systems. The world has discovered the dirty secret of our democracy, it can be hijacked easily and the people once complacent can be easily manipulated to support any cause with shoddy evidence, and out of fear for their own safety can be made hypocrites.
Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty or safety. Ben Franklin
Out of false paranoia, ignorance, aarogance, and FEAR we can be made to choose the way of the coward instead of taking the path of bravery.
More to come...
