Capitalism killing democracy?

The answer may be obvious to some of you, but it helps to have an economist and former U.S. politician say it.

Former U.S. Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, does a masterful job in his essay called, "How Capitalism is Killing Democracy" of explaining exactly how this happens.

Senator Sanders decries slavery in Florida

Senator calls for hearings "so that the American people can understand how slavery can take place in the year 2008."

One day after a federal grand jury indicted six people in Immokalee for their part in what US Attorney Doug Molloy called, "Slavery, plain and simple," (Ft. Myers News Press, 1/18/08) US Senator Bernie Sanders declared:

"The headline in today’s newspaper says all that has to be said. In the year 2008, in the United States of America, slavery exists. Human beings are being forced to work against their will, are being beaten, are being denied their most basic freedoms. This should not be happening in the United States in 2008. This exploitation must end."
