Fascism is the union of government with private business against the People.
"To The States, or any one of them, or to any city of The States: Resist much, Obey little; Once unquestioning obedience, at once fully enslaved; Once fully enslaved, no nation, state, city, ever afterward resumes its liberty." from "Caution" by Walt Whitman

2012-07-03 "Chris Hedges: Corporate Capitalism Will Quite Literally Kill Us" by TheAlyonaShow
That’s what our guest tonight argues in his latest book, by travelling to, and documenting life and the destruction of it in so called, “sacrifice zones”. This includes the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota; the city of Camden, N.J.; the now leveled mountains of West Virginia; and the migrant-worker camps that resemble modern day slavery of southwest Florida. So why are they sacrifice zones? Because both human beings and the natural world have been used and then discarded to maximize earnings in a marketplace that rules without constraints. They’re perhaps the most shocking and in your face examples, but should they be used as a warning sign as to where the rest of the country, and the world are headed? Alyona discusses his new book “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt” with Chris Hedges Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and Senior Fellow at the Nation Institute.
