Yes, we have it good. You could too if you were to demand that things change. Keep a close eye on your government representatives. Demand that they represent you and your fellow citizens, not some corporation that only wants to sell you sub-par items, provide an overpriced service or a polluting product to support their ludicrous profit margin. Run for office locally. Know who your local, state and national government representatives are. Participate on as many levels as you can. If you cannot participate for whatever reason then help someone who does.
