Happy New Year! Who Was The Radical MLK? by The Anti-Social Socialist

The world of the corporate executive in the U.S.: a “booming” stock market; “strong” economic growth; “America” (their version) is great again; an inordinate effect on elections – uh, make that selections; companies that destroy the environment while diverting billions of dollars from the working class to the parasitic class (like Chevron, Halliburton, Kinder Morgan, […]

How many of us have the courage to resist the pressures wealthy executives cruelly aim at our minds like weapons of psychological warfare? Do we dare appear cold, insensitive and selfish by not indulging in fundamentalist consumerism?

Mergers & Acquisitions Or Murders & Executions?
