The Threat to Democracy

I was watching SKY News a few minutes ago as a member of the American Swamp was registering his concerns about what he perceives as Trump’s threat to democracy.

The guest speaker was a former member of the Bush administration.

The threat to democracy to which he referred is a code phrase for threat to corporate profits. This phrase was used extensively back in the 1960s to justify our war in Southeast Asia. This phrase was used again to justify our wars in the Middle East.

Anything that gets in the way of corporate profits is a threat to democracy.

The real threat to democracy, of course, are the corporations themselves and their lackey stooges in the government who attack anyone who dares to take one penny from their corporate pockets.
