Quotes about Dissident: The dissident does not operate in the realm of genuine power at all. He is not seeking power. He has no desire for office and does not gather votes.

I think that the critique I had of what was going on in our financial system from six, eight years ago-after seeing some of what we've suffered through and even since the cataclysm itself-in terms of the structural changes.
