"...if we are indeed so "irrelevant", then why on earth is our opinion so darned "important" to everyone?"

It's so "important" because the political economy we live under is not democratic. People who control capital have more political power than the people who do not control capital. Therefore, power is not held equally by the "demos" - the citizenry.

However, the municipality is the one "level" of government where citizen action can overcome this to create directly democratic forms. That will be the real test for "raising the Hammer" - and every other city.
