Chomsky on democracy and oligarchy
See the interview below. Turnout in the last election was so low because we don't feel like our voice matters anyway, since it doesn't. As has been made abundantly clear, the voice of the 1% rules and we know it. So why bother? The regressive lackeys in Congress have been all about ensuring that government doesn't work, knowing that we'll just blame it on the system and say 'fuck it.' And of course it worked. Meanwhile they manipulate just enough of their base with red meat to get them to the polls to win elections. I can fully understand why even Randi Rhodes retired from giving a shit.
