Freedom Fries are back

In these days when a nation, its leaders, and media apparently seem not even to notice when an overwhelmingly popular winning majoritarian set of goals and desires are dismissed and “tossed under the bus” in a glaringly anti-democratic power grab, causing our electoral process to became a mockery as well as a fiction, it comes as little surprise that our Symbols, as well well as Values (Facts, too), are all up for grabs.

Winners of the game (but not of a legitimate election), muse about major tax self-benefits and war. Our traditional power mongers and pundits now glibly speculate on upcoming “elections” as though nothing untoward or illegal had occurred in the last one. For them, the People don’t exist … except to provide money and occasional “votes.” A true Cosmetic Democracy.

It’s like smashing into a boulder in the road, resulting in a trashed vehicle with fatalities and some severely injured passengers, but having the survivors get up, limp and drag themselves around the wreck, catch a ride and keep moving like nothing inconvenient had happened. The wreckage gets removed, the boulder remains quite a while, but none of this … makes the news or even comes up in conversation. Life Goes On, Like It Never Happened.

The illustration here, from a few years back, remains quite valid today, so it seems.
