Nice post, JO.  Things don't change much over time, do they?

Those 14 characteristics fit America almost perfectly. And the video? How could one not agree that we no longer live in a democracy. We are free only in so far as we are free to walk around in an open-air prison. The more recent term coined to decribe our present system is Inverted Totalitarianism

Chris Hedges also explains this well: "A neo-feudalism on a global scale"
