Agelbert NOTE: The Rigging ROT goes a lot deeper than Reich mentions here. Perhaps he goes into more detail in his book. At any rate, I do not share his optimistic belief that the system can be fixed for the simple reason that those oligarchs have a veritable ARMY of vicious, greedy bought and paid for foot soldiers out there who scheme, lie to, cheat and in other ways abuse we-the-people 24/7 to make sure the system remains as corrupt as it now is. Part of that army is well represented in the 🐍 20 members of the "Democratic 😉" Party DLC, so the 😈 Republicans have lots of corrupt company.

That said, the video is quite educational 👍, so please watch it and pass it on.

The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It with Robert Reich

Former Secretary of Labor Robert Reich presents the reader's digest of his latest book, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It. He explores the system of power in America that bails out corporations instead of people, even in times of crisis, and breaks down how we have socialism for corporations and the rich, and harsh capitalism for everybody else.

As power has concentrated in the hands of corporations and the wealthy few, those few have grabbed nearly all the economic gains — and political power — for themselves.

Meanwhile, workers have been shafted.

This isn’t a democracy, where all power is shared. It’s an oligarchy, where those at the top have the power to grab everything for themselves.

But history shows that oligarchies cannot hold on to power forever. They are inherently unstable. When a vast majority of people come to view an oligarchy as illegitimate and an obstacle to their wellbeing — which is happening before our very eyes as this crisis exacerbates — oligarchies become vulnerable.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
