  1. What the problem has always been and still exists today, is the apathy of the general public and the aversion, nay laziness, to seek out facts, using many sources, to obtain a balanced knowledge of what is going on in the world around them. Include some critical thinking in the mix and their on the way to being better informed than most of their peers!

  2. Does it really reflect ‘genius’ on the part of the oligarchs? Or is it more the case that the majority of the people are simply lazy intellectually or just want to put in their work hours, watch a little TV, engage in a little sex, have a bite to eat and repeat? It is difficult to impossibly today to generate outrage among the citizenry on any level unless, of course, it has to do with who won last night’s American Idol or Super Bowl.
