One thought on “Has America Become a Dictatorship Disguised as a Democracy?”

    Clearly, we are now ruled by an oligarchic elite of governmental and corporate interests.

    Almost every day I see an article along these lines. Have the people writing them ever studied American history? Or better yet, read Howard Zinn? In the 19th century and much of the 20th century, Chinese-American workers were prevented by law from becoming American citizens while the KKK was involved in a reign of terror throughout the South. Meanwhile,that bastion of liberal thought, the Nation Magazine, editorialized against passing legislation reining in the KKK. Workers were brutalized for simply trying to organize as this IWW website indicates in great detail: http://depts.washington.edu/iww/persecution.shtml

    As for the newspapers, the only source of information prior to radio, yellow journalism made Fox News look scrupulous by comparison.

    Donald Trump is a throwback to the 19th century and nothing more.
