Politics Without Politicians/Direct Democracy

I may not agree with everything here, but there are some interesting points here, which do relate to the semantics/metaphors of language.  We get stuck in a grove and don’t realize the limitations we are setting forward with are sometimes best of intentions and as the meaning of the metaphors change over time, we often don’t notice the falling away from our or their original intent–let alone their inability to take in new paradigms.  When power and greed get in the mix there adds the rub.

I'm interested in hearing people's ideas about metaphors and to post other people's metaphors as well as my own!
