BPR Quote of the Day: Kings and Kingdoms

“‘Smaller government,’ it turns out, is not actually smaller government but different government. It’s government for the rich instead of government for the rest of us. It’s a departure from democracy and a shift toward the old hierarchical systems of kings and kingdoms, with the new kings being named Trump and Cheney and Bechtel and the new kingdoms being their corporations.”

Thom Hartmann

from his book Screwed: The Undeclared War Against the Middle Class (2006)
