The problem with governments is that their primarily interest is getting re-elected. Now that is supposed to result in them satisfying our demands but often they find it easier just to manipulate us. There are so many tools the governments use that allow them to turn a blind eye on the real issues and beat up something trivial. Lets have a look at some of them:

- Fear (Yeah we all know this one)
- Nationalism (And this one too)
- Consumerism (not quite so obvious but probably the reason why the USA has stayed together for so long and why the people of China really just don't give a shit what the government does)
- Class division (a classic)
- Mass media

The only solution is for people to open their eyes and reject the bullshit that gets rammed down our throats.

The consequences of our oil reliance have always been too distant for the government of the day to care. Not to mention the scarifies we need to make should begin immediately. Not the smartest decision a party could make to get re-elected. Things will change though once people can no longer buy and run their SUV's.
