Here's a really good video on YouTube about police brutality:
Police brutality has been on the rise for many years in America, and it is yet another symptom of the creeping fascism that is overtaking this country. It has to do with the widespread notion that wealth=morality--and that if you are poor, it is because you are immoral and therefore inferior to those who have money.
We have a government that has been overtaken by those with the most money--who buy our representatives' votes with promises of special favors and campaign contributions. It is in the interests of the rich to see to it that the poor and middle class are divided against each other and kept afraid--in this way, they manage to maintain control. The French Revolution taught them what happens when the poor unite against them--and that is the thing they fear the most.
The predations of the rich are what is behind the disaster that is "free trade", the shrinking middle class in America, the war for oil in Iraq, the deep poverty in Africa and Latin America, the sweatshop labor in China. It is the rich who benefit from illegal immigration. It is the rich who are behind he pollution of the earth and the rape of the environment which has resulted in global warming. It is the rich who have bankrupted the American people--and when we are a third world country, they will pull up stakes and leave all of us holding the bag.
Corporatism--another term for fascism--is a disease which must be eradicated from America and the world if civilization is to survive.
