blackout

Greg Palast writes some pretty infuriating articles. I’ve been reading his book, The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, and browse his site from time to time. But this article, tying together Enron, GB, GWB, England, the CA blackouts, and the NY blackouts had me shaking with anger. To hear about these looters who have somehow managed to position themselves at the top of the country and paste on facades of honor and decency, it makes me furious, sad, and hopeful, and defeated all at once. These people have redefined the rules, gone back and overturned the regulations that kept them merely wealthy, and are now laughing to the bank. The invasion of Iraq seemed huge and is huge…but I believe it pales before the deregulation of power and media.
