The reliable Arbogast over at Sic Semper Tyrannis observes that "armies may march on their stomachs, but democracies march on their educational system." This upload by mgarthoff onto YouTube educated me pretty well, so maybe there's a chance for our old democracy after all. An ordinary citizen manages to compress the government's malfeasance, malicious complicity, and breath-taking number of disasters into a few minutes of homespun video and provides a constructive response. It's really well done, I only wish it would've played all over the world for the past week. But it's here now. Pass it along!
