I agree with @6 and @30. There are two paths to power: money, and numbers. If you don't have the former, the best use of your time is organizing people to vote as a bloc, unionize and act as a cohesive group. Shouting loudly, especially into the void of the internet, will get you nowhere except to alienate your allies.

The white substance in your Bialetti was probably aluminum oxide, which is harmless. The "link" between Alzheimer's and aluminum is correlative, at best.
