    solutions. Direct action.

    Representative government is an oxymoron.

    Simply can't put too much faith in it.

    All the hard work toward progress is actually done outside government.

    Think of the turning of the tide on the Iraq War. Public opinion was way ahead of corporate media, which was dancing with D.C. It took public opinion to change, outside government, to finally get government to change. And even at that, it hasn't changed all that much. Only non-governmental change will get the government to move further.

    When the village is on fire, a sieve will not substitute for a fleet of fire engines. Sometimes incremental change won't EVER scale to address the problem.
