did anyone suspect that our governments were lying and spying, etc? – yes
if anyone is not convinced, please read some of the documents that were released by Manning and Snowden at wikileaks

I think it’s all about controlling the market for certain products (big brands) and profits.
More reason to support local products and services!

i blame you.

all humans are to blame!

Not all humans, I wouldn’t blame people like the Dalai Lama, and those working to help others. Snowden and Manning too!
I blame corporations, they run the world, but it’s very difficult for most of us to avoid supporting them – for example if you have a car, it’s impossible!
I was reading today about income tax not existing before 1913 – gotta wonder how we (or the govt) survived before then….hmmm

I actually think it’s worse now, more poverty, more wars, and more inequality – thanks income tax!

yes, governments have cleverly (or stupidly) gradually increased taxes
