Wall Street’s Parallel Universe

While I think this video is great, it’s the kind of thing that needs to be used to mobilize workers and not just expose the insanity of Wall Street and politicians’ priorities. We’re not going to be able to shame the masters of the universe into doing the right thing—they have no shame.

One response to “Wall Street’s Parallel Universe

  1. I agree – the video is great. But I doubt that it will play well with a private sector worker who has been laid off. The oligarchy is doing a bang-up job of playing one group against the other, aren’t they? You’d think that a private sector worker would say, that’s not fair – we need to lift all the boats instead of watching them sink one-by-one, but they never seem to be able to see the big picture. You have to give the oligarchy credit for being smart, if nothing else. They sure know how to stick it to the working class. Maybe things will get bad enough that people will start organizing and taking the wealth back. Don’t count on the unions to lead the way, though. When they let Taft-Hartley stand in the late 40s, they sealed their fate. It’s just too damn bad that it’s come to this sad situation. Not only do we need new political parties; we need new unions. All of them have sold out to the oligarchy – they are all paid shills.
