by Egberto Willies, OCCUPY:
Americans are used to being told how to think and what to think. Freedom of choice is cherished yet never really demanded. Americans have allowed the real dependent class, the wealthy, license to enslave.
Those opposed to a true egalitarian society where government, “we the people,” play a prominent role in deciding what is best for us all, claim that government should not pick winners and losers. They claim the “free market” is the best arbiter of the most efficient distribution of capital.
What does that even mean? Potholes, medical needs, alimentary needs, shelter needs and clothing needs exist irrespective of economic system. If these needs cannot be satisfied within the confines of the economic system it means the economic system is flawed.
