You touched on the heart of the discussion here Red. Hoping closly parallels falling into the same old trap of learned helplessness, as in "there is
nothing we can do about it, so lets watch and wait to see what happens". I see some possibility of perhaps being more proactive, like writing our
elected officials and making some noise in general. I would prefer a din, but usually the giant awakens in the 11th hour. Come to think of it, your
handle hearkens to an old story, the capriciousness of the Golem. Very interesting.
On another note not connected with this thread I will touch on briefly, very briefly, is a concept of "fundamental darkness", the belief that we
don't have the power to change our lives. Once a human being actually makes change in their life, then they have encompassed their own empowerment
and all the world opens up. But many are afraid of their own power, as I am surely guilty of myself, and we continue to sit around like roasted
chickens waiting for the sky to fall. It is all in the attitude.
So anyhow, to get back on topic, I am certain there is something we can do to prove to ourselves that the FBI is acting in the interests of the law
and ultimately in the interests of the people. We just need to find it.
