For years in America, we have been hearing "We need less government in our lives. Let business set its own rules, since the market knows best."
I'm going to be blunt about my feelings.
What "the market" knows best how to make money for itself, and how to screw anyone or anything that gets in the way of their profits.
They knew how to dangle so much money in front of politicians that those politicians wrote laws that left the metaphorical foxes guarding the hen-houses. Rules about workplace safety were weakened. Rules about environmental protection were weakened. Anything that might cut into profit was gotten rid of.
And while this was going on, Americans sat back like a bunch of fools and pussies and let it happen.
We need our government to grow a spine, and to actually slap big big business in the face.
We Americans need to grow a spine. We've got only one world, which is being crapped up by rich bastards who don't give a damn about anything but their own profit. It's being crapped up by own own laziness and wastefulness.
And no amount of wishing and praying is going to solve this problem. We have to get off of our fat lazy asses and do something.
What are you doing to make this world a better place?
