Interesting and very well written.
And then, what do we do about it? I've been thinking about it for some time....
At some point, the balance of power will shift, but at the moment, they've got the power. Dissent is not an option. The TSA is as monolithic and immovable as the Berlin Wall once was. Impenetrable.
But slowly, the sands of time wear it down. Little by little we chip away at it. Eventually the balance shifts.
Your account helps to shift the tide, but I fear the turning may be a long time in coming.
