A so-called “overhaul” to rescue Social Security is another Republican Fraud-in-progress.
Denial of the need for economic decisions and actions that could slow or reverse global warning and a deteriorating global ecology is another Republican Fraud-in-progress.
Tax cuts disguised as tax reform is another Republican Fraud-in-progress..Personal “ownership” of a means by which we can afford health care is another Republican Fraud-in-progress.
Medicare Reform is a Republican Fraud-in-progress.
Suppression of wages, unions and employee retirement plans as a means of “growing the economy” is another Republican Fraud-in-progress.
These are part of the larger overall fraud of an economic religion that compares with a pretended Christian Capitalism. Led by economic theologies spewing forth from an assortment of corporate-sponsored think tanks and theoretical strategists the economic theology of number-crunched corporate capitalism is as sterile and empty as the whited-sepulchre of literal Christianity’s ‘innerant and absolute Bible.”
Both are fixed and inflexible ideologies built upon concepts and extrapolations now turned to stone. Neither take into account the most powerful force that always successfully resists mindless adherence to a fixed dogma … human nature.
Current self-appointed born-again purveyors of economic theory inevitably run into problems when human masses don’t follow the playbook. Just as many Christians have demonstrated that not all of us willingly live lives as blind followers of rigid Scribes and judgemental Pharisees, we all do not manage our economic lives according to some wise and proven dogma of capitalism.
Christian history has demonstrated overwhelmingly the human capacity for unrighteous dominion, crusades, inquisitions and outright murder. Identically, economic history is replete with evidence of the human capacity for unrighteous economic dominion, economic crusade, inquisition, manipulation and in some cases the outright murder of citizens who did not attend the official economic church.
Corporate capitalism lies behind election fraud – an action that betrays any notion that unrestricted free-market activity is driven by a natural desire of all participants for the highest good of all concerned.
Corporate capitalism and its dark sinfulness of greed and self-interest lie behind election fraud and moves already in progress to redistribute the wealth in this country.
Rescue of Social Security by gutting it,
protecting the environment by raping it,
taxing more of the poor and less of the rich,
putting more and more citizens out of reach of affordable health care,
and suppression of wages and benefits are not tenets of an economic theory or policy that reflects the intention of achieving the highest good for all concerned.
They are in fact high evidence of pursuit of so-called Darwinian economics – the survival of the most aggressive at the expense of the most vulnerable.
Such is what is at stake when we let corporate media tempt us to look the other way while the fox raids the henhouse.
Such is what is at stake if we let our apathy dominate our sense of American freedom and the power of democratic process.
All those self-important arrogant talking heads are absolutely not smarter than we are.
But they sure like to pretend that they are.
Are we going to pretend they’re right?
