GW Swicord - I don't know in which universe do you live, but it can't be this one. Voting ceremony is just a charade - in case you haven't noticed, your "elected representatives" are bought with corporate money before, or shortly after they come to office. That's why you can get over 20 year in prison for copyright infringements, while for starting a war that kills hundreds of thousands of foreign civilians, you are not even prosecuted. Those "do-gooders" are just a bunch of hypocrites, and in a system whose official propaganda is "greed is good", I would not expect anything else.
Even today, they babble about pipe dreams like "sustained economic growth", while more then 80 percent of fish in the oceans are dead, the rest is poisonous, the oil is dwindling and humanity is about to experience a massive die-off from population overshoot. And all thanks to gullible sheep who do not do their homework and just follow the flock.
