Seems to me that a very simple truth has established itself, the consequences of which are unalterable: the bad guys won.
They won everything, by way of regulatory capture, even if they’ve yet to accomplish their goal of literally “owning” everything.
The kabuki of a Carl Levin and all those inside the beltway who pretend to be concerned aside, I see no reason for hope. There will be no justice for anyone deserving it and no justice against the criminal monied class, which can best be described as the Democratic and Republican parties. That most Americans willfully strap themselves, like suicide bombers, to this bi-partisan apparatus of deception and destruction is vivid and damning proof of the nation’s collective, indeed nurtured, insanity.
If you are a young person with a dream, you’ll need to look for a different country in which to realize it. Where that might be, I couldn’t tell you…
