What is That Feeling?

That feeling--of powerlessness and helplessness--is the feeling of being on the receiving end of tyranny. Our tyranny is of the irrational, persecutory, exploitative kind related to the rule of a selfish, unprincipled minority. It's the tyranny of wealth and corporate hegemony. 

I have never felt that kind of powerlessness, only frustration, in relation to our government as it was intended to function. That government belongs to us (or did) and its imperfections are purposeful and built-in. The inefficiencies are meant to protect us from tyranny.
