massively wrong

I again find myself in agreement with Senator Sanders. Such massive economic inequality cannot be good for our nation. It rips apart any sense of community, and promotes a financial elite that hearkens back to an feudal era where obscenely rich oligarchs lived off the backs of peasants and serfs

This isn’t the American dream. This is not the nation I want.  And I doubt it’s the nation we want to leave to our children and our grandchildren.

most ominous development

Even though most of us recognize the growth of corporate power, there have been far too few voices raised in warning. Berry is absolutely correct in his assertion that corporate power is a clear and present danger to the democratic process. We ignore it at our own peril.
