Stop spreading lies.
Government remains completely relevant, and when enough people wake up to the reality, and the power they have over government, they can use government as the tool to do the job the public wants government to do. The system works, which is why each new generation has obtained greater levels of freedom. Right now we may be losing ground, but the U.S. public will find another way to defeat the power mongers, as they have done generation after generation.
No, the drug war tactics have not been going on forever, it is a tactic developed in the sixties.

This documents the ever growing irrelevance of government and the concept of the state governing individuals.
We are sliding into a feudal corpratocracy and the individual is only a unit of production/consumption.
It was learned through history that actually owning the slave was costly. So this system has been cultivated to make the slave not only pay it's own way but also pay for the right to pay their own way.
The irony struck me hardest when as a child I realized we GIVE healthcare to our food, yet charge the consumer of the food for the same and at a high premium.
I wonder what thinking person is the least shocked? Who among us has not pondered how all those billions in drug money is legitimized?
"hey senator X there is a convoy of armored cars delivering our agreed contribution"
It has ALWAYS been a dirty, unfair exploitation of power since we gathered into societies. That this is finally being broached should be suspect of another agenda entirely. One might suspect a feigned investigation and perhaps more of those funds going in other directions but business to remain the same.

I find it very frustrating that people have been fooled into believing there is nothing they can do, and that they can't influence government, when you would be surprised at how effective a letter to your congressional rep can be.
