Deliberate Disregard

The carcinogenic chemical cover-up by Dupont and 3M--that included a devious plan to prevent its exposure in scientific literature--has been uncovered in the out of court settlement with the State of Minnesota, where these cancer-causing chemicals were illegally dumped for 40 years.

Deep Dark Money

The deep, dark money flowing from US-based polluters in the American Chemistry Council is now deeper and darker as the state-owned Chinese chemical manufacturer Wanhua joins them in corrupting federal elections in the United States.

Cannabis Hysteria

Fear-mongering for money and power is the true motive behind cannabis hysteria over the last century. Under the moron now running the U.S. Department of Justice (Attorney General Jeff Sessions), protecting the interests of ubercapitalists such as Hearst and Dupont, the American Medical Association, and opioid pushers like Purdue Pharma, Johnson & Johnson, supersedes the interests of public health and safety.

Sins of Commission

The mainstream media cover-up of corporate crime, which includes funding racist terrorism, is a scandal that only citizen journalists cover. Even public radio and television ignore this crime against humanity, that might taint their perceived purity as beneficiaries of corporate underwriting.

In the six-part series The Politics of Resentment, the Anti-Indian Movement in the US is revealed to be a corporate-sponsored betrayal of American values.

Occupy 1932

The Bonus Expeditionary Force, a.k.a. the Bonus Army, combined with Socialist labor organizers, are largely responsible for forcing Congress and President Roosevelt to implement socialist programs like Social Security and Medicare. Two of these veterans--occupying the U.S. Capitol lawn--were shot dead by U.S. Army soldiers sent to clear out them and their families, who were encamped in D.C. while seeking relief from the ravages of the Great Depression.

Reason for Hope

Saddled with Puritanical conservatives, the Republican Party is handicapped from the outset in its dogged pursuit of institutionalizing American fascism. In order to do that, they would need to put people to work, as the Nazi Party did in Germany. Punishing the downtrodden, by withdrawing social program support, only creates resentment among those who might otherwise have been their most loyal recruits.

As it stands, the only employment offered is mercenary work in the military, and while that poses its own problems, it also provides a sub-group of sociological misfits, trained in the science of killing. What could go wrong?

Society in Ruin

In the zero-sum game of taxes and budgets, Congress decides who pays and who benefits. Mathematically, if some get tax cuts, then others have their taxes go up to cover the shortfall. In the world of the Puritanical conservatives now dominating Congress, however, we will more likely see social program cuts and public health service reductions. In plain English, society in ruin.
