Chuck Ezy Kelly - Why working-class Americans vote against their own best interests

This video is five years old, but it is still pertinent today. To think of the type of society we could have had, instead of the dog eat dog, low waged, excessive hours at work, high debt society we have today. McJobs!

A two-minute excerpt from a General Motors video is a classic example of how easy it is to con American citizens into voting for the wrong politicians. By totally misrepresenting how working-class living standards improved, conservatives have convinced workers that government is the enemy, and they should rely on corporate good will to treat them fairly.

Don't remember hearing of him before. Since they aren't linked as far as I can see, and finding them took a little digging, here are his websites: Old one & New one

Could it be that large scale wage-slavery for citizens is not justice in the first place and has been greatly expedited by government-privileges for private credit creation?

Not according to Warren Mosler, a (surprise, surprise!) banker: Instead, according to he, we need UNLIMITED privileges for the banks and wage-slavery to government for the victims.

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. Henry Ford Quotes.
