"The citizen can bring our political and    governmental institutions back to life, make them responsive and accountable, and keep them honest. No one else can.”

-- John W. Gardner, US Secretary of Health and Education (October 8, 1912–February 16, 2002)

Gardner has it right; unfortunately, the reality is far, far away from the proposition. The "citizen" is effectively blocked from participation at all levels within the largely closed institutions of government and particularly from those representing themselves as international financial institutions.
