Our governments worldwide are corrupt and held at ransom by the very few who truly have the finances to effect the world. We all have to look to each other as individuals and get our lives in order. We are not so different and need to reclaim our power as people. Not as republican or democrat, which are momentary and meaningless words in the grand scheme. Knowledge, invention, and exploration is what humans should be doing; not arguing about which corrupt asshole got it slightly less wrong. The basis of our government is control, and is necessary with so many witless babies crying about everything all the time. The government is not daddy.
