I found this on the internet and thought I would share it with you.
Many on the radical right claim that the US government and economy is "socialist." I disagree.
I think the US government and economy is currently very right-wing, pro-corporate, and pro-wealthy.
It is also strongly anti-union and anti-labor. It has consistently been this way since the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt.
What happens when you have this sort of an imbalance between worker and CEO pay?
Democracy invariably suffers.
An imbalance of pay leads to an imbalance of wealth, over time. And this, over time, leads to a massive imbalance of political power that is detrimental to the principal of proportional representation, where the needs of the many (the poor and the middle class) should ideally transcend the mercurial desires of the wealthy and privileged few.
In the America of today, the ideal principles of democracy have been reversed and turned on their head. It is up to the youth of this nation to rectify these wrongs and save our civilization from those who are actively working to betray it, those "malefactors of great wealth" who sacrifice our rights upon an alter of predatory greed and a butcher's block of unregulated, unrestrained, unaccountable international finance.
