The Corporate Teleprompter Kid
"The American press, with very few exceptions,
is a kept press. Kept by the big corporations
the way a whore is kept by a tycoon
- - Theodore Dreiser

We know our politics are empty because our mass media suck - suck up to ruling powers, suck the intelligence from public debate, suck from the corporate tit. Nature and democracy abhor the resulting vacuum. If we as a people are ever to learn of the Big Body coup in Maine, DC or the UN, we will have to paint the pictures, sound the alarm, and fill that void ourselves. Consider:

We haven't evolved for 5 million years to give up our planet now. The question is not whether we will win, but when, where and how, and equally important, how much fun you had pulling it off. Work at this war, but never forget your pleasure principles. Angels can only fly when they take themselves lightly.
