The Masochistic Circle

I was listening to the Alex Jones radio show yesterday when a caller called in to say that his mistrust of congress was so strong that he was concerned about ending the Federal Reserve because then their powers would be back in the hands of congress which he didn't trust.

I thought the caller was demonstrating something which is at the very crux of the problems we have today in the USA. Americans are living out what one could describe as a masochistic circle, constantly falling for politicians that undermine the power of the people, their democratic rights and their representative voice in the government. This in turn worsens the government which gives them even less faith that government can do any good at all, so perversely the people actually end up supporting handing over more power to the very corporate manipulators and the international big business 'mafia' that acts against their best interests. I think I said it best in the chart below. I am open to any suggestions or critical comments on this representation that I hope might help understanding at least one side of the dilemma which we face in the US.
