With the recent SCOTUS ruling, our system of representative government is as we know it is over. This is not hyperbole.
The court, in effect, decided that corporations will be able to determine policy in all matters of government without any meaningful restriction. And before you jump right in and tell me that unions and the Sierra Club will have expanded rights, money talks, and big money talks loudest. It’s the return of feudalism, engineered by the SC appointment of Roberts and Alito during GW Bush’s term.
The SCOTUS, after installing a president via judicial coup, have now installed a corporatocracy, also via judicial coup. So much for judicial restraint from the Federalist Society.
See you after the jump for an idea whose time has come.
