Listen Up, A Sage is Talking

by Jon Faulkner
The next five years will determine what the U.S, will look and be like, for the next fifty years. After Bush undermined the government’s revenue base by handing out $3.5 trillion in corporate tax breaks, he started a couple of wars that have, to date, cost an estimated $2.4 trillion. Factor in taxpayer hand outs of a few more trillions to the banks, and the republicans have finally realized their long term goal – breaking the U.S. Government.

The day will come when a state is so broke it will ask the corporate banks for help. The help will be conditional of course. The state will be forced to privatize its government functions, which will involve the elimination of all social programs. All of its resources, natural or industrial, will be handed over to corporate management. Americans will have paid the corporations to dictate the terms by which they live.

Even today, corporations are buying up water all over the planet, and in the not so distant future if a populace wants this essential element of life they will have to jump through a few hoops to get it. Finally, freedom and the human need for independence will die with a whimper, not a bang.
