The Real "Monsters" Are Out On Wall Street!

Politics, from The Twilight Zone.

Read this amazingly acute and apposite essay by Marty Kaplan, from TruthOut today and THEN watch; or vice versa.
The game in Washington is to use the deficit as camouflage for destroying government's capacity to promote the general welfare. The game in Wisconsin and other states whose new Republican governors and legislative majorities are feeling their oats is to shelter the income of the wealthiest, and to balance the budget on the backs of the middle class.

I just watched that episode a few months ago. Great to see it here, and what prescience, huh?
