It seems in recent months (and really this has been building for years) that we no longer live in a democracy. Intimidation, fear, restraint of rights especially the First Amendment, and the large reaching hand of private interests are tactics and forces attacking and undermining our prisons, military, health industry, and edcuation. The danger of the privatization of our public services, that are at the heart of our democracy, is as clear today as it could possibly be.
Look up "Corpocracy" and/or "Corporatocracy". Educate yourself. Ask questions. Take Action.
Never be afraid to question "authority". In a democracy, THE PEOPLE are the "authority".
The time is now... united, we cannot be defeated.
