For thirty years the political and popular landscape has been dominated by corporate ideology.
Sack staff, cut taxes, bash unions, blame the left, persecute minorities, cut immigration, cut foreign aid and oppose the United Nations, avoid taxation, exploit labor, force wages down, work harder, cut welfare, support war, romanticize the military, push nationalism.....
And all their workers wearing black.
Any questioning is deflected with jargon that would rival 1984's Black/White and New Speak.
We have no power any more.
Our politicians are firmly is the hands of the plutocrats.
We no longer live in a democracy.
We live in a corporate plutocracy.
And we're well and truly sick of it.
