I'd love to have Steve Doocy take a test to qualify to vote. He probably has such terrible understanding of American government that he'd fail.

One wonders after seeing what is happening, whether those who seem to be in control (or out of control) understand the will of the people. The fact is that the people (especially the young) are speaking as they march, and they have crossed color lines to unite on the issue of justice: NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE!

For too long, many members of the police have acted as judge, jury, and executioner, and the excessive use of deadly force, especially against people of color, is totally unjustified. Not only do the rules of engagement need to be changed, but the mindset of the police as well. A predominantly white police force in a black neighborhood acts as an occupying force, that looks down on the inhabitants of that community as being less than human, and deserving of their brutality and disrespect. What we have is a form of Apartied, due to economics and racial prejudice.

But there is also another force at work here. It is one that has created the disenfranchisement of a whole segment of our population and created ghettos where enclaves of those who are to be kept hidden from society are kept at a distance by a militarized police force using "stop and frisk" and other forms of racial profiling to create a two tiered justice system. More people of color are incarcerated because they lack the economic opportunities given to those who are fortunate enough to be born into the race of the ruling elite.

However, economics does not play favorites, when the youth (no matter what color) have their future stripped by globalist policies that export jobs overseas, and destroy the middle class infrastructure that has made this country such an economic power house since the end of WWII.

So I am proud to see these young (with a few old die hards) marching in common cause against the most obvious and flagrant indication of what is wrong with our society. What will be the inevitable outcome is anyone’s guess, but one can only hope that it won't be Marshall Law and a more fascist and repressive system.

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
