Capitalism discarded Democracy and adopted Communism.

A new breed of Communism.

The type of Communism found in China.


This emerging hell is characterized by:

* universal slave wage
* no benefit packages
* elimination of government supported social safety net
* little or no environmental protections
* eviscerated government on all levels
* elimination of legal support of civil liberties & worker rights
* nonrecognition of existing religious ethos

All are welcome.

Scream as loud as you want, no one can hear.



Witnessing and being a part of the economic demolition of the American hope, the American conception of middle class is paralyzing.

In the beginning I wanted to scream. I did.

I'm past the point of shaking my head back & forth in disbelief.

Shattered. Hopeless. Silence.

Unless another person going is through something similar to what we are experiencing they cannot comprehend the complexities, the feeling of lost, rising hopelessness and a general feeling of a wasted life that grinds one down and eventually seeps into every pore of your being.

Wasted time.

Inability to do things.

I am particularly affected for I am older and I remember what used to be.

I remember what hope was.


I think I can trace the beginning of my estrangement from hope beginning back about thirty years ago.

A philosophy began to appear.

A philosophy that has brought America and the rest of the world where we are today.

Obama, ALL politicians, everyman, we are all helpless.

We are part of the problem.

There is a sickness inside of man and this sickness is killing us.

History does show that economic inequality, which is increasing here in the US and several other countries, can cause social unrest. The Occupy movement is an example, I think. What will this lead to? A new Teddy Roosevelt? A new labor movement?

What about the ideological divide? Will this lead to violence? I really do worry.
