Newsweek devoted a huge section on “Fixing America” this week, but they just missed the mark way off. Proclaiming that people should dismiss government and fix things themselves, playing on some old romantics about individualism and freedom, it’s simply irrelevant and an annoying distraction from the big picture.
The problem is this: In the same way that American Colonies were ruled and dominated by the British Monarchs a few centuries ago, the country today is ruled and dominated by a few private industries and special interests. Driving US into a third world society. And this is nothing the people as separated individuals can fix. They will be crushed over and over.
Money out of politics. It’s the only way.
