January 20, 2011"BlackCommentator" --
The United States of America is, in reality, a one-party corporatist state whose very existence is, more than ever, perpetuated by a conscious deliberate denial of reality, even in the face of the obvious.
This nation's internal and external political, economic, and military policies have nothing whatever to do with "democracy," "justice," or "human rights;" and everything to do with exploitation, hegemony, deceit, and control of the many--by the few. No amount of rationalization can change or ameliorate this fact.
Everyday Black, White, Brown, Red, and Yellow people in this actual one-party U.S. corporatist state are the de facto cannon fodder of the corporate / military Democratic and Republican Party foxes and wolves respectively. Moreover, it is utterly absurd and delusionary to expect "hope" to bring about much-needed systemic "change." The time is here for the people of this nation to dispense with myths, face reality, and change it.
