The Stalls of Higher Thought

leave a comment »

Occupied minds are easily distracted.

People who taught our children;
policed our streets;
picked up our garbage;
put out our fires;
built and maintained our parks, libraries, and roads
for a living wage became the scapegoat for
the impoverishment the private sector imposed on workers.
Instead of organizing to win back
their own living wages and lost benefits,
people were convinced that taking away
those of government workers
would somehow make them better off.

Divide and conquer politics.
The politics of fear, hate, greed, envy and spite.
The race to the bottom.
