The author makes the recurring and fatal mistake of suggesting the people are the constituents. This is not and has not been the case for over thirty years, not in a single piece of legislation that was passed.

What is unreal is that despite this obvious fact, he and virtually every other journalist continues to uphold the fiction in his own mind, and therefore in his writing, that government officials are the representatives of the American people. The people will never understand where we are, and how to move forward from here, until there is not one among us who understands completely the falseness of this assumption. There is no doubt in the minds of the government, they know exactly who their bosses are.

Industry backed lies benefit greatly from those who continue to maintain this delusion of representative government.
