Two things that really scare me are private mercenary armies and private prisons. These are direct sources of profit from making war and locking people up.
There was already too much war profiteering in the military industrial complex before these developments, but now the unaccountability and profiteering is even more obscene.
The secret (private) combinations and abominations have gotten above us as Moroni warned, and nobody’s doing anything about it.
Very nice interview. See, we should have elected Nader.
I love Moyers, and he has had some very good shows since the election, but he snubbed Nader during the election.
If all the influential people who knew that Nader was better had spoken up (instead of worrying about the “spoiler effect”), and if Nader had been allowed into the Presidential debates, and he still didn’t win, then America could be indicted for rejecting the truth. As it is, most are still in the dark.
Here’s a link to a Nader posting at the counterpunch site in which he makes an appeal that reminds me of President Kimball’s advice to BYU students when he told them to learn a trade in which they work with their hands to fall back on if necessary but also as a therapeutic hobby. I know that Elder Packer is a wood carver, for example, and taught his children to work with tools, girls not exempt.
Woops I forgot the link:
