ABSTRACT
We have written in these pages that it has become ever clear that the US has expanded into an admitted state sponsor of terror, a despotic dictatorship disguised as representative “democracy”, a police state. The cause of this crisis and the crises facing our society is the concentration of power in the hands of elite members of the market economy and representative ‘democracy’ (do a back round on the members of Congress to discern their previous incarnations before they became professional politicians). Accumulating power in the areas of economic and political decision-making effectively takes it out of the hands of the people, and consequently, the people, removed from taking these decisions become increasingly apathetic in being able to think they can change society into a genuine democracy. Although concentration of political and economic power at the hands of the political and economic elites respectively has been an indispensable feature of representative “democracy” and the market economy, the degree of the accumulation of power in the present capitalist neoliberal globalization is by any standard the highest ever in the history of this system.
