"The sheeple never learn."
This blame-the-people for graft, deception, and corruption in high places is--as I often feel moved to point out--the NUMBER 1 meme pushed on this site.
Millions of people are fighting the corporations. And while Obama has often spoken in the language of Progressive values, he just as often ACTS in opposing fashion. THAT part is not a surprise.
Wheeler may mean well.
Corporations never stop fighting and they wear citizens down since corporations, given their financial resources, can sue people who try to stop them. THAT is what the TPP is really about.
People are working on MANY fronts to oppose the corporate takeover of a New World Order that puts war, policing, and surveillance before human welfare, freedom, and basic well-being.
Pushing the Frame that the people are gullible has NOTHING to do with corporate malfeasance.
