  •  They are symptoms, not the cause (8+ / 0-)

    No jobs? Corporate greed.  

    A race to the bottom in wages and the destruction of unions is what they want.

    No heathcare? Corporate greed.

    Sick people have negative ROI.  Keeping healthcare tied to employment keeps people chained to what jobs they have, with ever increasing duties with little or no pay increases.

    No education? Corporate greed.

    An uninquisitive population with no capacity for critical thought is a compliant one.  They just need drones smart enough to push the right buttons, but not smart enough to question why.

    Who controls the government? Corporations.

    The NSA is just one piece of how corporations think they can continue their free ride.

    You might make some headway on those issues individually, but you'll be fighting them forever until you take the rot out from the bottom.

      If I had to pick one of my biggest concerns that didn't seem to be an immediate bread and butter concern, corporate  control of political power would be it.
