 We now live in a corporate culture based on fear and lack.  Our values have deteriorated from hard work, cooperation, and faith "All for one and one for all" to lovelessness, greed and profit at any cost.  Money is our God and when you worship the false god of greed the darkness moves in.

We've become desensitized to violence and our corporate culture is antithetical to human values. This violence and hardheartedness comes in many forms. 

We now live in a nation where corporations are people and money equals free speech.

We live in a rich nation that allows half it's citizens to live in poverty or near poverty. 

We live in a nation that allows millions of her children to go to bed hungry and homeless yet spends billions on the military industrial complex and the surveillance police state that's been put into place.

We live in a culture that condones banks foreclosing on people's homes while stealing pensions and life savings and allows corporate CEO's and Wall Street bankers to roam free without so much as a slap on the wrist for collapsing the global economy.

We live in a corporate culture where each year 44,000 people are allowed to die and denied health care so the insurance companies can make obscene profits.

We live in a culture where a person can be thrown in prison for smoking a joint but when banks and Wall Street steal billions and launder drug trafficking money it makes you a "Master of the Universe." 

We live in a culture that spends $40,00 a year to incarcerate each prison inmate but only $8,000 a year to educate an elementary school student.

We live in a culture where whistleblowers are labeled terrorists while the real criminals remain in positions of power in our government and corporate halls.

We live in a culture that condones and conducts torture not just overseas but throughout our industrial prison complex. 

We live in a culture that supports the death penalty even though the rest of the world stopped this inhumane practice long ago.

We live in a culture that spies on its citizens, illegally searches (be it the racially motivated New York Stop and Frisk law) or accosting U.S. citizens at every airport. 

We live in a culture that is destroying our unions and outsourcing our jobs so more and more people are not able to earn a living wage. 

We live in a culture where our police forces are now militarized and protect the 1%.
