    What corporate powers is he talking about exactly? It’s the state that takes our money to support and prop up their corrupt business practices. We give them trillions of dollars and pay for their mistakes and wonder why there is such extreme wealth inequality.

      Your obviously still caught up in this, right/left, republican/democrat idea. The speaker tries to break the viewer free of this web to illustrate his point. The government has been bought by big business long ago. They represent them, not the American people. Let go of this black or white thinking and you may just get it.

    I think this guy is dead on with his analysis. I just have a hard time watching, listening to or reading his work. Such a downer.
    Already know how and why things are fucked; do not need the sordid details, thanks. Will be focusing as much as I can on staying positive and doing my bit, as much as possible, to be part of the solution and not the problem. Baby steps everyday.
