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!

There is one thing you forget, if you look at the USA, all the candidates that run for president are backed by big financial institutions like Goldman Sachs and others.

They decide who will run for president and if the candidate is not suitable for the job because he is against the so called 'elite' they won't back him. If he still gets a lot of votes they will humiliate him and if he still gets elected they will kill him (Kennedy).

You can't vote for the people running these companies so you have nothing to vote for, surely you can vote republican or democrats but not before both candidates went through a full screening by the big financials.

What's even more funny is that you live in Switzerland. Switzerland runs entirely on banks. Banks are the boss in your country, it's Switzerland's nr. 1 export product. All the money the rich Greeks stole from their people is in your banks right now. Hell, all the nazi gold from World War II is still in your banks as well.

Stop making a fool out of yourself by being so naive. You don't have democracy, nobody will ever have democracy as long as the monetary system exists.

Here's a couple of quotes for you:

"Give me control over a nations currency, and I care not who makes its laws.”

Baron M.A. Rothschild

"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free."

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Especially the last one seems to fit you really well.
