AMERICA is the richest country on EARTH.

IT has the most millionaires, the most billionaires and it's wealthiest

citizens have garnered more of the planet's riches than any other group

in the world. They even have hedge fund managers who make in one hour

as much as the average US family makes in 21 years!  

This opulence is supposed to trickle down to the rest of the people, improving the lives of

everyday Americans. At least that's what free-market cheerleaders repeatedly promise.

Unfortunately, it's a lie, one of the biggest ever perpetrated on the American people.

The middle class is falling further and further behind in comparison to the rest of the

world. We keep hearing that America is number one. Well, when it comes to middle-class

wealth, the evidence says they're number 27 as well as having 48 million citizens on

food-stamps.

Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Propaganda Minister, once stated that -

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it,

people will eventually come to believe it."

Where AMERICA leads, SO also the rest of Western Civilisation follows, SO 

What DOES Western Civilisation need to let go of in order to be ready to move on?

TIME - indeed - to start THINKING about

ALL of this - in the context of a TRULY

SUSTAINABLE DEMOCRACY
