"The privatization of public services and functions manifests the steady evolution of corporate power into a political form, into an integral, even dominant partner with the state." -- Sheldon S. Wolin. Stricken with a terminal disease, the decline of traditional society is unavoidable.

Defenders of all that made America a shining example of human freedom are attacked and ridiculed for holding onto a moral and ethical system that is based upon the dignity of every individual.
