It's important to distinguish between....

a legitimate representative government whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed and an illegitimate gov't that engages in the arbitrary use of force. In many cases, there is no clear line but at some point oppression becomes obvious. There has always been tension between those governing and those governed, and striking the right balance is never easy. That's why we say freedom isn't free.

The key is to have an informed and engaged electorate who can hold leaders to account. The public airwaves, by law, must be used to serve the public interest. But currently, they're used to defraud the public. Citizens should organize and document what they consider fraudulent use of the airwaves, then petition the FCC to revoke the broadcast licenses of offenders. Taking back our airwaves would go a long way towards creating an informed engaged electorate.
