Americans are idiots
As but one example take Obamacare. Bill Maher takes a representative sample of our knowledge of the program and it's pathetic. For a representative democracy to work the public need to be informed so that they choose leaders to enact their wishes. But the corporatocracy keeps us struggling to survive so that we have no time to invest in our civic duties, as well as degenerating our educations that provide the tools for critical thinking. This is how the power mongers want us, ignorant and ill-informed, easily manipulated by media that they control and with which they constantly bombard us with lies and obfuscation. Granted there are those who somehow escape this manipulation but they are obviously not enough to make a lot of difference. To wit, watch our general misapprehensions about Obamacare below.
