The American people and the entire world need to understand that the threat to life on earth resides in Washington and that until Washington is fundamentally and totally changed, this threat will remain as the worse threat to life on earth.
There is no reason for a person to have thousands of millions of dollars.
Everyone who ever trusted Washington has been betrayed. Possibly there is an exception somewhere, but the betrayals are vast and are sufficient in number to define Washington as the least trusted entity on the earth.
When I met with Chinese policymakers in 2006, I advised them that there was a limit to how long they could rely on the U.S. consumer market, as jobs offshoring was destroying it.
On one hand, our food is polluted with herbicides and on the other hand by antibiotics. And then we have hormones and pesticides.
I have come to the conclusion that the West is a vast lie machine for the secret agendas of vested interests.
In the United States, journalists receive awards for lying for the government and for the corporations.
The Federal Trade Commission is supposed to enforce U.S. anti-trust law. Instead, the federal agency routinely violates U.S. anti-trust law by permitting monopoly concentrations of business interests.
Law is just one public institution, but it is a cornerstone of society. When law goes, everything goes.
Marxism is a success because it fuses the two inconsistent strains in Western thought - moral skepticism and moral indignation - and makes them complements in the attack against existing society.
Because of the failure of the federal government to enforce federal law, we now have 'banks too big to fail,' unregulated Internet monopoly, and the evisceration of a dispersed and independent media.
In the Matrix in which Americans live, nothing is ever their fault.
Marxism is the only doctrine that both satisfies the demands for progress and provides a safe outlet for moral expression in a skeptical age.
By offshoring the production of their products, U.S. corporations transferred technology, physical plant, and business knowhow to China.
Representing the people is not something 'our' representatives do. They are too busy representing a handful of private interest groups such as the financial sector, the military/security complex, and agribusiness.
Few Americans other than the One Percent have a stake in the American economic and political system.
The Golden Rule is to 'do unto others as you would have them do unto you.' Allegedly, America is a Christian country. This means that Christian America is following Jesus' Sermon on the Mount in a masochistic way.
If the Obama regime gave a hoot about 'humanitarian crisis,' the Obama regime would not have orchestrated humanitarian crisis in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and Yemen.
Progressives regard government as the white knight that protects the public from the greed of capitalists. If only.
When I was a young man, an individual with one million dollars was very rich. Anyone with a few millions more was considered richer than rich.
If it turns out that global warming and ocean acidification are consequences of capitalism's carbon-based energy system, the entire world could end up dead from the external costs of capitalism.
Globalism is a scheme for impoverishing First World labor and taking power and influence from the hands of the many and putting them in the hands of the few.
Peace is costly to the profits of the military/security complex. Washington's gigantic military and security interests are far more powerful than the peace lobby.
Corporations and Wall Street in pursuit of short-term profits have given the economy away.
When America's Newspaper of Record is nothing but a propaganda ministry, what is America?
The unambigious fact is that U.S. capitalism is a mechanism for looting the many for the benefit of the few.
Despite massive evidence to the contrary, libertarians hold tight to their romantic concept of capitalism, which, freed from government interference, serves the consumer with the best products at the lowest prices.
The Western media is a Ministry of Truth that operates full-time in support of the artificial existence that Westerners live inside The Matrix where Westerners exist without thought. Considering their inaptitude and inaction, Western peoples might as well not exist.
As the U.S. is import-dependent, this will translate into higher domestic prices.
Clearly what differentiates the U.S. from other countries is the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution defines us as a people. Without the Constitution, we would be a different country. Therefore, to lose the Constitution is to lose the country.
Under Reagan's policies, inflation and nominal GNP growth shriveled much faster than predicted, throwing off government revenue estimates and resulting in budget deficits.
The office of U.S. Trade Representative was created in order to permit corporations to write law that serves only their interests.

Many foolish people believe that nuclear war cannot happen, because there can be no winner. However, the American war planners, who elevated U.S. nuclear weapons from a retaliatory role to a pre-emptive first strike function, obviously do not agree that nuclear war cannot be won.
The concentration of U.S. income and wealth in the hands of the very rich is a new development in my lifetime.
Offshoring manufacturing jobs left Americans with fewer high-value-added, well-paid jobs, and the U.S. middle class downsized. Ladders of upward mobility were taken down. Income and wealth distributions worsened.
The way to attack the entitlements problem is to bring the jobs home. This could be done by taxing corporations according to the location, domestic or foreign, at which they add value to their product.
If all countries are exceptional, the word loses its meaning.
The propagandistic American 'media' and the crazed neoconservatives have set humanity on the path to destruction.
In 21st century America, capitalism has been unfettered from the regulations that democratized it and made it serve society.
There was no terrorism in the Middle East until Washington brought it there with invasions, bombings, and torture.
Washington is a black hole into which all sanity is sucked out of government deliberations.
The neoconservative ideology supports American financial and military-political imperialism or hegemony.
The road to economic well-being is to reward productive economic activity and to provide a moderate and predictable growth of money to finance real economic growth without reigniting the fires of inflation.
Paul Krugman, a professor at MIT and a consultant to the IMF, the World Bank, the United Nations, and the Trilateral Commission, is certainly a member of the establishment.
As truth is Washington's worst enemy, everyone associated with the truth is Washington's enemy.
