It works a little better if you don't view the system as us and them.
That's a two way street, friend.
It's hard to to see "us" as part of the system when those in working in the system play by different rules, and even refer to "us" as "civilians" to distinquish themselves from us .....
The "system" is at odds with the document that set it up and is supposed to govern it. If the Constitution does not mean what is was written to mean, and is instead a "Living Document", subject to contemprary interpretation, then the government is not "governed" by that framework, but by fallible men (and women)...... and we are not governed, but ruled. That is the road to perdition.
