    Both politicians of both wings of the Corporatist Party and the Mainstream Corporate Media have strong roles to play in reinforcing the tendency of people to justify the rightness of the society they live in.

    Occupy Wall Street had to be quashed because it was becoming highly effective in making –or allowing– people to look at their own situations and realize the injustice of our society.

    The role of Obama is to keep people in line, to make them feel they are at fault since he is, after all, a Democrat and supposedly “liberal.” And they don’t want to undermine the first black president.

    Wall Streeters were brilliant in their choice of a defender of their realm.

    People don’t like change. Where is it written in the Constitution that our republic must have a Capitalist economic system in place to the exclusion of all other economic systems?

    Folks clinging to the gunwales are the last to want to rock the boat. Its a critical mass issue. The suffering can still be ignored because it’s not about me.

    Inequality hasn’t really been visible because as earnings from wages went down, it was offset by going in debt. Now that all there’s no money in the system for anyone other than the 1%, inequality is going to become rapidly visible . . . to anyone exposed to any information sources other than cable and radio.
