Super Capitalism: The Transformation of Business, Democracy, and Everyday Life - But the rest of America isn’t enjoying an economic recovery. It’s still sick. Many Americans remain in critical condition
Roll Over Rover – Super Capitalism And Sheep
- As people continue to lie down, they will continue to be walked on
- As people continue to accept NO NEED TO KNOW, they will soon go nowhere on the parking lots masquerading as superhighways
Absolute Power (and Greed) brings about absolute madness as history demonstrates time and again.
A democracy in the service of capitalism is NOT freedom.
The number One mission of Corporations today is to make as much profit as humanly possible for their shareholders. (this is almost accomplished with 98% of the world’s wealth owned by 2%, and seven billion living off the remaining 2% scraps)
Before they became “Living (Epitome of Greed) Entities”, corporations had to demonstrate what good they brought to the community and environment.
The only accountability a Corporation has today is to make as much profit as humanly possible for their shareholders - even if it means BETTING AGAINST THEIR OWN CLIENT’S/CUSTOMER’S FUNDS, ABUSING THE CLIENT’S/CUSTOMER’S TRUST AND WELFARE
You would think with the Milgram Experiment after WWII, nations would be far more discriminating against believing atrocious lies and ignoring consequences, both past and pending, of such deadly proportions directly caused by economic strangulation and energy stagnation.
· WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT OUR MODERN 21ST CENTURY SCIENCE COULD BE SO CRIPPLED IN THE ENERGY SECTOR FOR SO MANY DECADES
· WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IN A WORLD EXPLODING IN POPULATION AND NEEDS, AN ECONOMY COULD CONTINUE TO DECLINE SIDEWAYS FOR YEARS
· AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THE PSYCHOLOGICAL CRITERION CAUSING THE “YOU WILL HAVE EYES, BUT WILL NOT SEE” SYNDROME, WOULD BE THE FOREMOST MOVER/SHAPER PERPETUATING LIMITATION AND ONGOING FUTURE DESIGNS OF RESTRICTED POSSIBILITIES FOR COMING GENERATIONS, WITH OUR ALMOST STONE AGE CONCEPT OF ENERGY
All the following organizations with good intentions, and their allies will need to step out of ego and incorporate as priority, the primary and only means which has the power to effect change against “Super Capitalism”, and that is the Science of Energy Evolution.

Standing Up For Democracy
Bill Moyers talks with activists about an initiative to open Americans’ eyes about income inequality. Moyers also delivers an essay on how the broadcasting industry has neglected its responsibility to the public. http://vimeo.com/39461407
On this weekend’s Moyers & Company, Bill Moyers talks with young but very experienced organizers George Goehl, Ai-jen Poo, and Sarita Gupta – all involved with a nationwide citizens’ initiative called the The 99% Spring, which takes place the week of April 9th. Organizers aim to train 100,000 Americans to teach about income inequality in homes, places of worship, campuses and the streets.
A 99% Spring co-organizer, George Goehl is executive director of National People’s Action, a network of grassroots organizations using direct action to battle economic and racial injustice.

Luxury retailers are smiling. So are the owners of high-end restaurants, sellers of upscale cars, vacation planners, financial advisors, and personal coaches. For them and their customers and clients the recession is over. The recovery is now full speed
Protesters rally against economic injustice.
But the rest of America isn’t enjoying an economic recovery. It’s still sick. Many Americans remain in critical condition.
Supercapitalism: The Transformation of Business, Democracy, and Everyday Life: From one of America's foremost economic and political thinkers comes a vital analysis of our new hypercompetitive and turbo-charged global economy and the effect it is having on American democracy. With his customary wit and insight, Reich shows how widening inequality of income and wealth, heightened job insecurity, and corporate corruption are merely the logical results of a system in which politicians are more beholden to the influence of business lobbyists than to the voters who elected them. Powerful and thought-provoking, Supercapitalism argues that a clear separation of politics and capitalism will foster an enviroment in which both business and government thrive, by putting capitalism in the service of democracy, and not the other way around.
