Mr. Alperovitz tells Paul Jay that if you concentrate wealth at the top, there’s not enough purchasing power to make the rest of the system work.

  3. ‘Democracy’ is but a word, as so many others in a dictionary. As someone once wrote…’socialism will rescue capitalism’. But joke aside, it is greed and corruption – under any form of government, that is doing us in.

  4. Time to bring it all home, get local and sell that simple idea abroad, not weapons.

    The tragedy is the entire populace needs to re-educate itself, and so many who are damaged and traumatized by military exposure are in desperate need of long-term therapeutic help.

    It’s a tall order, but what’s the alternative?

    • David, the word democracy has been used by all who desire to control and most that desire to control are political. Thus control is all about who splits up the money. The word re-educate alludes to those who know how to study and then will use what the study has proved. It is a sad situation that most workers are controlled by military methods. The lead scholars that defined methods of control was BF Skinner and Abraham Maslow click on to read http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_psychology
      For a good begging read and study the two methods of control in the work place. Therefore your recommendations have validity when those who know they need to re-educate.
      Thus there must always be a place to start to study if NOT nothing will ever come to profit .

      • Understood, and thanks for this Dwight.

        It’s a deeply troubling situation when we reflect on the way (totalitarian…ie now virtually all) governments seduce, coerce, control and corrupt by psychological means to wreck the minds, aspirations and lives of young people.

        You may or may not agree with me, but my reading of reality is that much of this is only possible in the US, because religion is widely peddled as a cultic phenomenon that is parasitic on the public imagination and distorts any sense of historical self-determination, whilst subtly condoning moral deviance, because it speaks in one language but acts in another.

        Guilt, fear and spiritual dependence seem to me to be root causes of political impotence and at the other extreme, outright criminality ~ of both the sleazy low-road, and top-end, high-rise “skull-and-bone” type…
