Nonsense. When government is answerable to The People, and when the design plan for fully operational checks and balances is functioning, and when media--arguably THE PUBLIC's air waves inform the citizenry about true events... THEN this idea that The People are complicit, accountable, or responsible holds merit.
The Black community IS under siege. Do you think Black citizens are responsible for this?
A rape culture is in place with many women targeted. Is it your view that women are equally complicit in this?
Either you understand that very real equations of power point to anything but fair and level playing fields, or YOU are delusional.
Vested interests would like to convince citizens that it is THEIR fault that lousy policies have been put into place.
Just look at this latest sell-out via the Senate and Congressional votes on "fast track," a means of preventing citizens--even sovereign governments and established laws--from interfering with trade agreements, economic and ecological Poker played by the biggest high stakes corporate gamblers.
Or consider what the revelations of the Page and Gilens study mean: that no major policy decisions of recent years reflect the will, wishes, and intentions of the governed.
The little trick played by those STUCK inside the soldier mindset (and/or card-carrying forum agent provocateurs) is that citizens are responsible for not FIGHTING back, as if fighting is what it all comes down to.
I believe that I am a citizen of a land that's been covertly subducted by a set of Deep State operators. They do not answer to the rule of law or the citizenry. They have command of more money than King Solomon and more weapons and armed clone-like soldiers taught to obey "authority" than did Hitler or Caesar.
And cut the crap about pseudo psychoanalyses... "your own guilt" and "not working for change." I've worked all of my life to raise consciousness, you arrogant chimp. What the fuck have YOU done? I answer to my Creator, as you must yours. Do not purport to answer for me... or to judge me.
