Re: America vs. the Oligarchs – We cannot let them win!
[quote=ckessel]So the big question is, can we organize and make a difference to soften the implosion or will we simply be looking at bits and pieces of the puzzle trying to figure out what to do? [/quote]
I’m pessimistic about taking the country back from the banking oligarchy. Jefferson said once we gave in to bankers, the country would be done. He said once we let the republic evolve into a democracy, we’re done. Madison said the Constitution required a moral people in order to survive. In addition, the 2nd amendment is pretty much dead since a majority of people don’t believe in it and because the people that do believe in it don’t actively practice it…there’s no militia…we need some governors to make that happen. Also the 1st amendment is effectively dead since the power elite owns controlling interests in our mass media and the government "regulates," i.e. subtly dictates, the airwaves.
I’m having trouble finding the basis for change…
