More Confessions of an Economic Hit Man: This Time, They’re Coming for Your Democracy by Sarah van Gelder — YES! Magazine

And in fact, the cancer of the corporate empire has metastasized into what I would call a failed global death economy. This is an economy that’s based on destroying the very resources upon which it depends, and upon the military. It’s become totally global, and it’s a failure. – John Perkins

Great book.

But were we ever really democratic?  Are any of us really “free”?  We are born into a system where the entire expectation is that we will conform and work and feed the machine whether it be education, work force, politics, health care… the choices we have are actually illusions but more on this another day.
