Why is the mainstream media ignoring instances of ordinary people protesting corporate America and demonstrating for a better life? Notably, in California recently, an 85 year old woman was arrested after she joined a protest, with 200 foreclosed families, against home foreclosures outside a Chase bank branch.
Instead of focusing on people agitating against consumerism and our buy now pay later system, the media is intent on following the Tea Party and its protests, which is, notwithstanding the true fervor of its members, a manufactured protest created by rich men pulling the strings from behind with their money.
I hope that in the new year, we can see the media begin to focus on the things that are truly important, like ordinary people standing up and saying we need basic changes to our culture and economy. Let’s build a sustainable way of life this year.
