We no longer live in a democracy we live in a corporate plutocracy.
We no longer have any power - all power devolves to the corporate plutocrats who rule us.
We are stuck with the Status Quo.
And we have no power to change it.
In fact it continues to get worse.
Corporations expect to increase their profits by 15% per year no matter what.
What of our governments?
Our governments are corrupt.
They kowtow to the corporations because they share in their profits and privileges. They retire into directorships and seats on the board. They no longer serve the people.
And they are now signing off our taxes to corporations who want to sue governments for lost profits.
This is corruption.
Our media is owned by these corporate rulers so we never see anything they don't want us to see.
The poor, the destitute, the lonely, the oppressed, the foreigner, the hungry.....
You wont see them on your T.V..
Unless it is to demonize them.
Only cooking shows, violence, and evil.
Delicious and corrupt.
And sports to distract you.
So we are stuck with the Status Quo.
