Holly’s post is a terrific companion piece to Naomi Klein’s latest Guardian piece about disaster capitalism and the shady characters in our current administration.
I consider myself middle class (from immigrant union blue-collar roots) and have been disheartened and disgusted by the trickle-down nonsense espoused by the Reagan campaign since casting my first presidential vote against him in 1980. No, I’m not an economist but I’m a human being who used to work a tech job and prefers to live around healthy, fed neighborhoods who don’t feel vulnerable. If my tax dollars help with that — so be it.
What we have behind the shadows now are hoarders with zero moral compasses.
