A pertinent voice from the past...

A voice from 80 years ago and it still carries a powerful message that rings as true today as it did then. It is pretty spooky. Listen all the way to the end. It will give you goose bumps.

Thanks Bob! We are governed by midgets now I fear. We have government of the corporations, by the corporations, and for the corporations. Working people live in fear.

Betsy, You should read "The Discourse of Voluntary Servitude" by Etienne de la Boetie. It was written about 400 years ago but it reads like it was written yesterday. Mandatory cheerfulness and willful ignorance is what we are experiencing all over again, and again, and again...

Spooky :)
