trade groups? Oh, yes, you mean groups of corporations can write laws for their own profit.<quoted text>sure they can. i gave you examples.
trade groups of ordinary old businessmen and women can form lobbying groups.
concerned citizens can form lobbying groups.
knowing about your own country is fun!
concerned citizens? I suppose if you get enough concerned citizens, they could, like OWS did, yet since they didn't have big money behind them, they could not accomplish anything.
Knowing about your own country is depressing. I would much rather have freedom.
