Spreading Activism for Change - by Stephen Lendman

Egyptians want it. So do Palestinians, Arabs throughout the region, protesting East and West Europeans, others across the world, and growing numbers in America, especially in Wisconsin - ground zero to save organized labor. 

At issue is freedom v. tyranny, what Aaron Russo's 2006 film called "Freedom to Fascism," identifying America's money system as inimical to liberty and justice for all. Along with American-style corporatism, it lets banking giants control money, credit and debt for private self-enrichment, colluding with government for laws favoring them, as well as others destroying democratic principles, fast eroding and disappearing throughout the country.

It produces:

-- pervasive public and private corruption;

-- concentrated wealth;

-- government serving America's aristocracy, not popular interests;

-- alliances with global despots, replaced when they forget who's boss;

-- America's war machine and imperial arrogance;

-- subjugation, not freedom;

-- mass impoverishment and human misery;

-- a war on dissent; and 

-- another preventing constructive change, forcefully when other ways fail.

It makes America and similar societies unfit to live in, heading them for tyranny and ruin. It also fuels popular anger, bubbling eventually to the surface, growing and now spreading across the Middle East and parts of America.

On Saturday February 26, all 50 states held pro-labor "Save the American Dream" rallies, promoted by MoveOn.org:

"in every major city to stand in solidarity with the people of Wisconsin" and workers in their own states under attack. Wisconsin is ground zero. The cancer is national, pitting an alliance of bought-and-paid-for governments, corporate bosses, and corrupted union heads against organized labor, democratic values, and basic freedoms, including a living wage, essential benefits, decent living standards, and a seat at the table representing themselves.
