“The price of apathy towards public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.” ~ Plato
The Citizens United v. FEC decision was a major turning point in the corporate movement to seize our government, nation and world. With the power of the media now unleashed for political influence and corruption, all the powers-that-be need to do is tilt public opinion enough to set the stage for corporate wins on election day. That increases the amount of corporate politicians in power who then set policies that are not just “pro-business”, but intentionally sabotage, paralyze or destroy anything that restricts their unquenchable blood-lust for greed. The ultimate goal is a fascist takeover of America. We will only have ourselves to blame when that takeover is complete.
“The liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism—ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.” ~ Franlink Delano Roosevelt [Read Article]
