Of all the conspiracies out there I can count on one hand which ones are true. This one isn't.
And while I agree awareness is good, focusing on the problem means one isn't focused on potential _solutions._
What you are also forgetting is that things are ALLOWED to be the way they are.
i.e. America gets the government it deserves because people won't fucking do a thing to change it. They will bitch, and complain, and then carry on with their life -- letting the government steal the profits of their labor, and then go back to watching the boob tube.
The solution is, and always has been, local community living to a higher standard as a positive role model. Nothing else works.
