Not making fun of them. I realize that nothing will change with the bankers until both politicians and voters decide to correct the system. That is a fact.

A large sophisticated scam was perpetrated on the People of the Western world. It involved the cooperation of Business, the Media and Political leaders.

Correct.

And when people march and riot, (As they should) you reply with plocebo's that they voted in the wrong people.

Correct again. In the USA there were no big demonstrations. No great pressure on our politicians. So the same bankers are still in business here and so are the same politicians. In this respect Greece, Spain and Portugal have more brains than those of us in the USA. When they get screwed they protest.

In a real Democracy, the voices of the opposition are as easy to hear as the voices of fraud - But we don't live in a real Democracy, so the voice of protest are mocked even by the other victims of the scam...

Well, Greece, Spain and Portugal probably had reason to demonstrate at an earlier time when they could have avoided the financial difficulty they have now. Here in the states the time for the demonstrations was when the mortgage crises started. We didn't. So the voters have set themselves up for another financial loss because the same bankers and the same politicians got away with it. Actually, the USA voters should have been outraged the minute they heard about the banks financing homes to people that could not afford homes.

What do you consider to be a real democracy?

As a first step, Corporations are forbidden to own more than one media outlet, and step two, the media is forced by law to present all political views in an election, and privatly paid for advertsising is outlawed.
