Agreed, we want:
1) A continuous mapping and quantification of the Military Industrial Complex, complete with relations to people, and businesses up and down the chain.
2) Continuously updated Corporate to Lobbyist to Politician studies, with full exposure.
About your assertion that "These people are only in power because _we_ allow them to be" ... your heart is in the right place, but my head says otherwise. I wouldn't say that the powerful are powerful because we *allowed* them to be -- that overstates how much power *we* really have to prevent the concentration of power.
The powerful either have power to begin with, or they take it. Either way, they won't give it up, and if you try to take it from them, they will fight you. Since they have power -- and I don't -- they will tend to win. Indeed, because I believe they will win, I don't even begin.
For everyone today who says "Bad Guys run the world, let us liberate ourselves from our corrupt overlords", I remind you: we said the same thing in the nineties, and the eighties, and the seventies, and the sixties. And the thirties. And the teens. And the eighteen-nineties. And so on -- the American Revolution, for example.
I'm not saying "Give Up" -- but let's not comfort ourselves with false optimism. If you declare revolutionary intent, do so in pragmatic terms, with specific achievable goals. No idealism: a successful revolution demands hard-headed realists.
