    an existential crisis for American working people and should be addressed with a Manhattan Project response.

    Yet neither party is doing anything of substance, nor will they until we organize and demand it.  The reserve army of the unemployed is too useful and far too complacent.

    Justice For Will Will spent his brief, courageous life fighting for the rights we all take for granted. Please share his story to support the fight!

      what the people who own and operate this country WANT.  Workers are irrelevant.  They don't even vote half the time, and when they do vote, they can be reliably hoodwinked by the expensive propaganda bankrolled by the 1%.  Corruption cannot be legally controlled because according to our corrupt Supreme Court, it's constitutional.  And it is now so entrenched that no one in Congress who values their position would vote for it.

      You cannot reform a system where the rot has spread so thoroughly into the foundations.  If we want a government of the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE, and for the PEOPLE, then the current government has to go.  Probably suicide-by-idiocy, if present trends are indicative.  Consider it a Darwin Award for the national culture.
