“The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty.”
We MUST get the money out of our politics by reversing the CU decision by the 5 extreme court injustices with an Amendment. We need to get a progressive tax which is FAIR and tax the wealth of the wealthy MORE than the poor. At a higher rate. Not lower. We need a minimum living wage and not a minimum slave wage which is now 45% of a living wage.
We have a legalized minimum slave wage system in place with the extra corporate profits stolen from labor given to the shareholders. The stock market is the machine from the 1917 movie from Fritz Lang, Metropolis. It's job is to enslave the 'have nots' so the 'haves' can live in the stolen luxury this system provides.
Break up the oligarchies and monopolies with our anti-trust laws. This combined with a living wage will result in a renaissance of small businesses enabled by the hard working labor force. Saving enough to start small businesses they would be able to start because they would have customers because everyone would earn a living wage instead of slave wages. Citizens with the money to spend at the new small businesses their local fellow citizens started. A place to have a fair chance to improve your life. This is the definition of the USA.
A competitive market place does not exist in nature. Without it we have anarchy. The wealthy continue to rule over what they see to be the slave class.
Instead of fighting slavery AGAIN we need to focus on how to keep people growing and working as technology replaces labor. We should not be wasting precious time in scapegoating and embracing the extermination of the 'other'.
FDR's plan built the greatest middle class in history. Time for a green New Deal.
