collateral 41: privileged disinformation

from collateral news: If you subscribe to the common wisdom, you probably think politicians are corrupt. If you're a reasonably well-informed citizen, at least you know their names. But imagine if you weren't permitted to know the identity of your congressperson or senator. Imagine that congress met & voted on laws in secret. Would you tolerate it? The fact is you already do.
