Your cynicism is bullshit. Go to a real police state where they won't let you leave, you're insulting those people that can't leave. There is also only state press. The US has a state press... NPR, besides that it is free. A massive violation of press freedom is something to watch, rand closely, yet it is not the same as not being able to say what you want.
The system is not irreparably broken, with enough will it can be changed. You've already lost with your bullshit attitude so either shoot yourself, tie yourself up because the interrogators are on their way, or suck it up and point out what can be done to fix things, or prevent them from getting worse; and despite your baseless whining, things can get A LOT FUCKING WORSE.
