Re: They don't give a damn, and you feel [....]
For most people on the planet, most parts of every day life are better than they were, say, 50 years ago.
A smaller % starve, go uneducated, suffer from illness, die early etc. etc.
Maybe... maybe.. some 'self entitled' people in the USA and Western Europe feel 'disenfranchised' but that's mostly because.. a. turns out everybody else wants a bit of the action and b. they let things get to that point in their own country.
From shopping, to voting, to working.. most people in developed nations have some options. Not doing anything and blaming 'the man' never got anyone anywhere.
p.s. check out the Guardian's podcast on Rousseau ... he was moaning about all this over 200 years ago
