Many of us believe that the United States is devolving into little more than a third-world country with a small wealthy minority class and a much larger class of disadvantaged and disenfranchised who have essentially no say in the policies which impact them and little or no capacity to rise out of their present situation. In some nations this is known as a caste system, in others quasi-serfdom; or, as it might be termed, neo-serfdom. The attached piece explains that this is not just coming to America, it has arrived. If this is permitted to become entrenched as the cultural norm, as is the neoliberal plan, there will be little which can be done to change matters down the road. This is why it is urgent that we close ranks now and act as one people to rise up and return the promise of hope and freedom which we were finally able to sniff the virtues of following World War Two up until the neoliberal takeover in the late 1970s. There is no time to lose. We must set aside our differences now to have any hope of seeing real change in the lifetimes of our children. There is much to gain and little to lose – do not go silent into the night.
