We are politically destitute. Profits again drive everything — in the United States, Citizens United gave corporations unfettered access to buy and sell political will, and in the time since they have successfully installed politicians favorable to the elite class. Our corporations possess obscene wealth, coffers that rival those of nation-states, and rule over our people via their proxies in political office.
Encore un peu :
Our entire society boils down to one measure: profit. We are being eaten alive by capitalism. Americans have been brainwashed into a national ethos which is defined by capitalism. In the relentless pursuit of profits, we have eroded all political and social freedoms and created a system defined by its remarkable cruelty in a time when we have access to greater wealth and resources than at any other time in history.
