from my swain’s tumblr site. Thought I would share here.
a new word
there have beeen a lot of words thrown around lately regarding our current economic depression – socialism is one of the big ones. stimulus, spending, sub-prime mortgages, economic meltdown, etc. here’s a word most of us haven’t heard (along with it’s definition):
noun ( pl. -cies)
government by the wealthy.
• a country or society governed in this way.
• an elite or ruling class of people whose power derives from their wealth.
ask yourself this question: do we really live in a democracy? or does it just look that way on the surface. still not sure? then ask yourself this question: who would our government be more likely to listen to? an average citizen or a multi-national corporation worth billions?
