Ecrasez l'imfame! SCOTUS

Wipe out the infamy!
Erase the anti-human decision of the Supreme (so-called) Court of the United States which made corporations equal to women and men.

From a Bill Moyers speech:
The revolt of the plutocrats has now been ratified by the Supreme Court in its notorious Citizens United decision last year. Rarely have so few imposed such damage on so many. When five pro-corporate conservative justices gave “artificial entities” the same rights of “free speech” as living, breathing human beings, they told our corporate sovereigns “the sky’s the limit” when it comes to their pouring money into political campaigns.
 Tolle, lege..... pick up and read; read and understand.

There is no longer any limit to the scope of the criminality of those who believe themselves to be the privileged classes.

The plutocrats do lose their power eventually, but only after at least two Gracchi are assassinated and an Octavian puts the military permanently in charge. Our prospects are indeed glorious.

I wonder where we are in the process. If I were in the middle of things during the Battle of Actium, what would things look like? It would not be quite as clear cut as it appears to us 2,000 years later.
Have the Gracchii been killed or shot already? Is the military and its cohorts in charge or not?

Arsen Darnay said...

Early days yet, I would say. Plutocracy is lording it over use, not running scared. When that time comes, it will be obvious.

I hope we do not share the fate of Cicero, then.
