“I go to bed at night dreaming of another recession,” he says without batting an eye, as the jaws in the BBC news room drop in shock. How could he possibly mean what he's saying? And yet he clearly does, as unaware of the moral context of his statements as you would expect a sociopath to be. He even comes right out and tells people that they should expect to lose all their savings, and that he doesn't care because he will personally profit from it.
“The governments don't rule the world,” he announces, completely confident, unafraid of consequences. “Goldman Sachs rules the world.”
That's the reality your “free-market” has created. A world ruled by soulless monsters who don't even realize when they're saying something that would shock a person with a halfway-functional conscience. A world where elected governments no longer matter, and a faceless cabal of corporate crooks is the only authority.
When elected governments are threatened by drug gangs, we get a War on Drugs. When they are threatened by terrorists, we get a War on Terror.
Play the video, and see for yourself. And then ask yourself this question: where is the War on Corporate Power?
“If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.”- founding father Samuel Adams
