America Celebrates Lateral Transition From Monarchy To Corporatist Oligarchy
Caitlin Johnstone

Just a bit cynical for my taste. You’ve left out all the best parts of America’s story. Maybe you’re not deeply American enough to celebrate the achievements of We the People, despite the machinations and plots of power mongers and “elites”. Maybe you never knew that part of America. But in any case, today’s not the day for this sort of talk. Save it for Tax Freedom Day or something.
