What does the Federal Reserve really do?

Did Reagan really raise taxes on the middle class 6 times,...yup!

What is the true goal of neocons, and how will they deliver it?

Define Socialism, and why do people think it is pure evill?

I have been arguing that Education should be a cornerstone of the Occupy program, concentrating on what is the heart of the insight on political corruption, vis-a-vis the influence of Corporate culture upon our political systems.

I have argued that the culture of Corporatism can and should be illuminated through a compiled history of the abuses that this Competitive Model has exacted across the globe on communities, both financially and through the corrosive effects of this model upon our dynamic of relating to each other as neighbors. People have become mere objects in this system, dispensible as tools...what I think some have called reification...turning People into mere materials and cogs in the machinery of Profit making.

This illumination project and compiled history would serve as a Library of Abuse for all who may wish to draw from this Library examples to propogandize (inform) People about why We should be banding together to resist and weaken this System of Abuse. The alternative Model of Cooperation could then be more exactly proposed, its benefits propounded and alternative frame of values hammered out into examples of practice. Corporatism could then be more clearly understood as a Fascist threat to the welfare and freedom of People across the globe and The People more easily animated to work together against the very clear Enemy of their collective, humane interests.

I always thought socialism was when the government regulated corporations

There's a bit more to it than that.

Is it the basis? Well recently writing a paper for my English class using Marxist criticism I felt it prudent to read his book and found that he believes it is the transitional step between capitalism and communism. Getting warmer?
