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!

often so many complex issues are boiled down to a single dimention with right and left sides

What's "funny" at my place: the still 2nd largest party in parliament, so called "traditional values" one (and general overuse of "moral" issues), presenting itself as very on the right and so on...

...is fairly "socialist" (of course, they take offense at such labeling, but their program and words are there for everyone to see) - essentially more than what remains of The Party (and sort of very much in opposition to them - kinda in the way like Iran sees the UK and US as two devils, or some such)
