The World Bank and IMF are meeting in Washington — why don’t we care anymore?

• Washington Post
Now, though a few vigils and rallies will probably pop up surrounding next week’s meetings, they will be nothing like the multitudinous, riotous and tear-gas-filled affairs of years past. Where have all the protesters gone?

So many of us are like sheep. It's only after things become bad enough that we become like rats... cornered rats, that is.  Then we fight with a fierce, ferocious panic... just like cornered rats. It's only then that, after many of us have lost the fight, that we realize how easy it would have been if we had fought that hard right at the beginning.

Is it that we don't care or is it that:

1. We often don't know, or;

2. We often don't understand the importance of an issue, or;

3. We don't know how to change things because we don't see how to make voting work and there doesn't seem to be any other way, or;

4. We DO understand how important the issues are, and also that activists are being targeted, and we fear for our lives if we become active.
