Killing our own

If you wonder why we have little trust in government, just read this. And if like us you ever looked at this, you'd never fully trust what the government told you, ever again.

Teach your children well.

From the book in the last link...

"In 1947 Albert Einstein wrote:

"Through the release of atomic energy, our generation has brought into the world the most revolutionary force since the prehistoric discovery of fire."

"We scientists recognize our inescapable responsibility to carry to our fellow citizens an understanding of the simple facts of atomic energy and its implications for society. In this lies our only security and our only hope—we believe that an informed citizenry will act for life and not death."

Informed citizenry, not a bad goal. Thank you.

In general, I think the days of elected representing the electors is long past. Of course, they'll swing back around once a term to get elected (kinda like Wyden's OR tours.)

Otherwise, they view election as a mandate to do what they want (more condos, bigger agencies to experiment on the populace, higher taxes) and ignore what we want (less potholes and better schools.)

The stuff we want they can use as justification to get us to pay more in taxes.

An informed citizenry would be a challenge to the status quo.
Quick turn up the volume on the TVs and cut school funding.

Horrible! An Internet search of "unethical human experiments" reveals lifetime supply of nightmares. Unfortunately the victims don't have enough PETA level celebrity outrage to get attention to their cause.
