Corporate militarism run a-muck
The infiltration of corporations into the American political system has been incremental in the same fashion and nature that Dwight D. Eisenhower warned about in his famous January 17th, 1961 speech about the military industrial complex and global corporatism.
“This is an incremental death, like putting a frog in water and slowly turning up the heat until suddenly it dies, never having know it was under attack;” said Jack For Right Now, “this is a life or death struggle for the American people.”
Small groups of people cheered the protesters on, as they pasted by PNC. Some with middle fingers raised high for the executives to see. “ In Europe they come out and demonstrate all the time, I'm with them, it's about time, people spoke up here,” said Monica Barns a passerby as she watched the protesters pass.
Even high school children came out in support of the die-in “I think they should continue on until some type of change happens for us, it's our future they're working for,” said De'ja Johnson and Sa'ja Washington who walked at the side of the march in support.
Students from an Alternative Democratic School came down to participate in the march and observe the democratic process in action at the GA. “The kids were really excited about the movement and I figured what the heck it will be a great learning experience for them,” said Tristin Protovich a teacher for the Alternative School.
Everywhere across America, Americans are waking up to the unsustainable nature of our current two party system, and the Orwellian New-Speak and Double-Speak coming from the mainstream media and their talking heads in the mainstream media.
“This is not a democracy, this is a version of military corporatism,” said Jack a protester from Occupy Philly. “War plus greed equals the death of America,” one sign read. This is the new truth we face out here, our government and they're “defenders” have turned their collective backs on the America we love. Replacing it with a militant-corporate version of fascism.
Supported by all the ism's the socialist structures and left/right news/entertainment throws at us all day, everyday.
The difference is that in stead of the government directing the conversations it's the the multinational corporate conglomerates that control the language of our “1984.”
