"There is nothing in 5,000 years of economic history to justify the belief that human societies should structure their behavior around the demands of the marketplace. This is an absurd, utopian (dystopian?) ideology. The airy promises of the market economy have, by now, all been exposed as lies."
"More than 100 million Americans—one-third of the population—live in poverty or a category called “near poverty.” Yet the stories of the poor and the near poor, the hardships they endure, are rarely told by a media that is owned by a handful of corporations—Viacom, General Electric, Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., Clear Channel and Disney. The suffering of the underclass, like the crimes of the power elite, has been rendered invisible."
Hedges nails it once again,. the corporate/military system is fast becoming total/complete,. fascism (corporatism enforced by the state) has now been realized on a world wide scale.
What are we going to do about it?
