Mis-information,a natural resort for the power elite. Power is kept by holding information, and using that for the benefit of the elite,whilst ruling the masses with dis-information. All leaders do it,it is the power base. Of course all the policies and decisions that are made must be shown to be logical, based on emperical evidence and in the interest of the nation as a whole or sometimes benefit, those,less able to take care of themselves. We live in a pluralist democracy,whereby, social groups can lobby or petition parliament to enact or mediate the law, or fiscal or monetary policy. That is why we have elections.

So, what's the diff between the full and the non-full version?

Sound on the full version is not as good.
