The moneyed employing class has visited upon my generation a contrived denial of the chance to live up to our potential and contribute to society in a meaningful way. The atrocities that continue to be committed behind closed doors in secretive boardroom meetings are criminal at best under the RICO Act, and treasonous to present and future generations of humanity. Because the majority of government entities, as well as many "officials", have been complicit in these plans to block prosperity from millions of people, to obscure and obstruct the paths taken by former generations to reach the American dream, and have provided cover to those foisting this reality upon us, they are equally guilty. But yet, there is more money in existence than at any prior time in history. Who is the authority here? The Declaration of Independence and US Constitution suggest that the power rests with the people.
It is plain to see, if you look past the distractions constantly hurtled at us, that the goalpost has been moved. Much like Lucy and Charlie Brown in the "Peanuts" cartoon, there isn't even a ball in play; that is, unless, like the more fortunate half of my peers, one starts out in life with advantages that others don't have. For the rest of us, it's a crap shoot. However, any more than two bouts with misfortune and you wind up in the boat with us. Instead, our children, your grandchildren and great-grandchildren have been abjectly sentenced to a destitute future full of uncertainty, instability, lack of good nutrition, safety, a sound education, health, and promising careers. Opportunities are limited to floating from temp. jobs to seasonal positions @ minimum wage (1/3 of a living) with no security. In the ancient Roman Empire, the "insulae" were poor people living in small, crowded apartments with only 2-3 rooms which housed their large families.
The broken promises, the failed policies (trickle-down, deregulation, free-market), the out and out LIES and deception, the smoke and mirrors from the warped views of PIGS in the Boardroom, in Congress, in the Whitehouse, on the Bench, in the Statehouses, etc.. is dismaying but it is all adding up. People need to start taking this seriously. Those named above are hard at work at ripping this country up and tearing it down. I know it; you know it. It has been going on for 33 years, at a minimum, and needs to be brought to an end.
All hope is NOT lost. Keep spreading and speaking truth to power, while the masses are continuing to awaken.
