This pretty much sums it all up.
I still think one of the reasons folks feel cut out of the governing process is due to non-participation. I only hope the folks in the streets will use this as more inspiration to get involved in those parts of the process where participation is the most vital. From there they can affect the change they are asking. But the fact that so many people relate to what is going on in the streets should tell you exactly where we are as a country.
It is hard to argue with the points made on that link. I agree with every word.
