The following quote was taken from page 265 of the book “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt” by authors Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco:

“Corporations are disemboweling ever last social service program funded by the taxpayers, from education to Social Security, because they want that money for themselves. Let the sick die. Let the poor go hungry. Let families be tossed into the street. Let the unemployed rot. Let the children in the inner city or rural wastelands learn nothing and live in misery and fear. Let the students finish school with no jobs and no prospect of jobs. Let the prison system, the largest in the industrial world, expand to swallow up all potential dissenters. Let the torture continue. Let the teachers, police, firefighters, postal employees, and social workers join the ranks of the unemployed. Let the roads, bridges, dams, levees, power grids, rail lines, subways, bus services, schools, and libraries crumble or close. Let the rising temperatures of the plant, the freak weather patterns, the hurricanes, the droughts, the flooding, the tornadoes, the melting polar ice caps, the poisoned water system, and the polluted air degrade until the species dies.”
