with Ralph Nader

democracynow Jun 4, 2013

Describing the United States as an “advanced Third World country,” longtime consumer advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader calls for a new mass movement to challenge the power corporations have in Washington. “It is not too extreme to call our system of government now ‘American Fascism.’ It’s the control of government by big business, which Franklin Delano Roosevelt defined in 1938 as fascism,” Nader says.

Nader continues: “We have the lowest minimum wage in the Western world. We have the greatest amount of consumer debt. We have the highest child poverty, the highest adult poverty, huge underemployment, a crumbling public works — but huge multi-billionaires and hugely profitable corporations. I say to the American people: what’s your breaking point? When are you going to stop making excuses for yourself? When are you going to stop exaggerating these powers when you know you have the power in this country if you organize it?” Nader has just published a new book, “Told You So: The Big Book of Weekly Columns.”

  16. Pretending America…

    The fictitious entity of Corporatism creates postmodern “law” – Law based on fiction IS fiction.

  17. Finally, someone is calling it as it truly is: American Fascism. Actually, Mussolini defined fascism, “Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power.”

    Benito Mussolini, leader of National Fascist Party (1922 -1943), Italy

  18. People were dumb enough not to vote for him.
    Always voting against their own interest.
    The souther states are good in that.

  19. Ralph Nader, just superb.
