Hardware, Embedded Systems No matter where you look these days, there's a profound sense here in the west that the people no longer having any tangible control over what our governments do. Sure, we are allowed to vote every once in a while, but effectively, most of our countries are governed by backroom deals and corporate interests. If matters really do get out of hand, how do we fight this? Well, with technology of course!

What we are now suffering from, I think, is the lack of accountability. Governments all over the "western" world are trying to overspend each other going heavily into debt.


Yes, completely true. In Europe there is a lot of talk about "austerity" and we've seen a lot of talk about cutting salaries, pensions, etc.. But, on the other side, politicians gave themselves more money, big companies and government management have bigger tax benefits. But the news don't talk about that. It's simply disgusting.
