Call it what it is

September 3, 2012

And who they are.  As do Bill Moyers and Bernard A. Weisberger in this article. Excerpt:

“We are nearing the culmination of a cunning and fanatical drive to dismantle the political institutions, the legal and statutory canons, and the intellectual and cultural frameworks that were slowly and painstakingly built over decades to protect everyday citizens from the excesses of private power. The “city on the hill” has become a fortress of privilege, guarded by a hired political class and safely separated from the economic pressures that are upending the household stability, family dynamics, social mobility, and civic life of everyday Americans.

Socrates said to understand a thing, you must first name it. As in Athens then, so in America now:  The name for what’s happening to our political system is corruption — a deep, systemic corruption.”

Take away their power, with truth and democratic community action.
