Here’s yet another video about the current state of affairs. This time it’s the late George Carlin. He’s considerably more profane and angry than gentle Robert Reich, but just as concise and just as eloquent. This rant from several years ago seems even more prescient now that the President and both houses of Congress have completely ignored the American people, who overwhelmingly favor increasing taxes on corporations and the super-rich.
I’ll be back in the more comforting world of literature in a few days with a post about F. Scott Fitzgerald, who also had a few things to say about the American Dream.
