PoseJuxta, Phrygian Cap, Symbol for Independence. Read about it there.
Where next for Fodder? Is it really hopeless? Everyone is somebody's fodder sometime. What can these little liberty caps do, as they have before. Something to set your cap for?
Some people might not want to wear the cap to promote "freedom" as was its history in the French Revolution and our own - the regular people, not the military - see Hello Fodder, Phrygian Caps. Some may think that everyone here is free already, or that it smacks of Revolution as in French. An alternate slogan for wearing one could be America the Fiduciary.

That's an upgrade. You don't have to like someone, agree with them, love them, anything like that. You just have to act commercially and socially and politically with their interests at heart, on a par with yours - even higher. If you have superior knowledge or power that affects them and their choices and wellbeing, beyond their "ken," you are a fiduciary as to them. Why not? Except that people get rich the other way.
Still, worth fighting for.
The pharmaceutical industry, all sales, lobbyists, corporations, used cars, everybody, whether selling ideologies, in divorces (!), selling candidacies or any Things. No fogging allowed. Transparency. Subject to fiduciary duty. Clear legal standards already for that. To begin, a simple start, see ://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiduciary_duty.
America the Fiduciary. Oh, beautiful.
That would do away with Enron problems, those cheating high risk mortgage fine print issues, self-dealing, non-disclosure, government partisan stuff. Think about it. A new meme to set on the loose.
There go the lobbyists. A view of Pamplona in Washington.
That fiduciary attitude alone, if enforced by immediate new law as the new norm, would even get us back to the requirements of the Preamble to the Constitution. Even the Senate has to like it. House follows. How can they argue no? Go to //www.senate.gov/civics/constitution_item/constitution.htm#preamble.
Nobody could be anybody's fodder.
But then, how would people get rich? No idea's perfect. Set your cap anyway.
