[extropy-chat] Tyranny in place

Congress shoves through so many laws (many hidden within lengthy documents) that 
most people pay no attention to it until it directly affects them in everyday 
life. In fact this is a pretty rational response I think often to most of the 
stuff going on in the DC reality distortion field. Then, if the new law is 
annoying enough the public will whinge about it until the law gets revoked, 
modified, struck down by the court systems through challenges, etc.

If we had to go marching in DC every time they do something stupid, we'd be 
permanently living there.
