I read a headline this morning from some idiot with the BBC labelling the Bushes as the “new Kennedys” or something to that affect. It was people like the Bushes who killed the Kennedys. The big money boys, the military/industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about in his farewell speech. The older Bush, himself, may have very well been personally involved. The Vietnam War alone was hugely profitable for these people. JFK was a threat with his leanings toward FDR liberalism and social benefit programs. These programs don’t pay the war industry anything. They just help people.
This country seems to be irresistibly drawn towards what we are: A rightwing oligarchy run for the benefit of a handful of billionaires and mega corporations. Everything seems to be directed toward their benefit at the expense of the rest of us. And what is to stop them? People who only know what they read on social media and other shallow electronic sources of information?
Do you know that the majority of Americans and Europeans don’t even know what the Holocaust was? How can they see the neo Nazi movement in these two geographic areas if they don’t understand the historical context from which the Nazis and Fascist came from? We are so screwed.
