  •  How hegemony works (4+ / 0-)
    Last week, the lower chamber of the state’s legislature passed a bill that would authorize a task force, composed of representatives from employers, the financial services industry, and government, to consider whether Oregon ought to establish such a system.
    Note who participates in the actual discussion.  Note who have no representation.  This is normal, daily, business-as-usual in the US, and the Democratic Party, you know, the party of the Common People, has put this body  together.  That's the daily reality of hegemony in our nation and our lives.
