38. +1. The double-bind is excruciating. If we try to hold politicians accountable, we're accused

 

of being closet republicans, if we posit alternative strategies we're told it's up to us to force politicians to enact them.

All the while, the majority of politicians on both sides go their merry way enacting the legislation that their *funders* desire, and their funders are the 1%.

But it's not *their* fault, it's always *our* fault, for failing to parse the double bind.

The american people are manipulated to the nth degree, herded like cattle. It's sickening.
