Street Fighting Years

When the link is lost between citizens and governments, when politicians see the world through the eyes of rent-seekers, when mainstream media is infatuated with the darlings of Big Business, it's no surprise mobocracy takes on flawed democracy. Protest is the TINA (There Is No Alternative) of disenchanted citizens.

True, the critical mass is not there yet but the build-up looks promising. Slowly, but surely, our civil society is waking up to the consent manufactured by reactionaries.
