CD should note that perhaps there are no comments on this totally non-revealing and uninsightful article because the American people are ahead of CD in understanding that a “Majority of Americans Opposing NSA Spying” has NO, ZERO effect on what the EMPIRE DOES.
What a ‘majority of Americans favor or oppose’ makes not a damn bit of impact on what is actually done — precisely because the EMPIRE, which has captured, “Occupies”, and controls everything that is done in what is laughably called ‘our country’ doesn’t matter a damn to the Empire, because ‘our country’ isn’t any kind of functioning democracy or democratic Republic (regardless of what these lying two Vichy facades of Empire call themselves as the neocon ‘R’ Vichy party and the neoliberal-con ‘D’ Vichy party) because the EMPIRE controls everything.
But the people seem to be understanding this reality of a controlling EMPIRE more than the leftish progressive-lite and supposedly alt media.
It’s past time for the so-called leftish progressivism alt media to get ahead of the people in this fast brewing Second American Revolution against EMPIRE — instead of holding the people back by continually writing useless articles that wonder why the phony political facade of the unmentioned EMPIRE is not responding to the wishes and demands of the “Majority of Americans”.
The ‘people’ already sense, and the Black community KNOWS, that this is an EMPIRE not a democracy, so as Chomsky likes to say, “it is ‘unremarkable’ that it acts” like an EMPIRE, not a normal country!!
Get with it, Nadia (and CD) — “It’s the EMPIRE, stupid” — and a supposedly leading progressive alt media web site like CD, can’t lead from behind, like our gutless complicit faux-Emperor/president is trying to do by dragging his feet and not recognizing the 8000 lb elephant of EMPIRE sitting in plain sight right in the burning kitchen of our dying democracy!!
