What the 1% don't want you to know
See the video below, Moyers interviewing Krugman on Thomas Picketty's book Capital in the Twenty-First Century. This is why I focus in my blog on the kind of info therein. Krugman and Moyers maintain that we must disseminate this information far and wide. For when enough people are aware of it then there just might be enough people willing to do something about it. Willing to apply enough pressure on government to countervail the oligarchy. If we don't fight for democracy we will surely lose it, and we are well on our way already. And that means all of the 99%. We must put aside some time for civic responsibility no matter how busy we are, no matter what other responsibilities we have. The 1% deliberately created this situation where just don't have the time and energy to fight back. That's all the more reason why we have to.
