One Party, Over All
Stephen Zunes tells us at Truthout why America is a one-party state when it comes to war. We are one-party economically as well: capitalism. Each ideology encompasses some small differences but all variations exist within a narrowly defined range. Few stray from the essential premises. The few who do are marginalized.
Maybe our new Pledge of Allegiance should be:
I pledge allegiance to the the United Corporation of America. One market, at war, with profits and riches for some.
Happy Patriot Day.
