Infectious Greed—America’s slide from Democracy to Oligarchy
Social Justice and Religious Freedom thrive only in the crucible of a society of involved people who are effectively engaged in the direction and actions of the institutions of government. An infectious greed now grips much of our business community. America is beset by the depredations of six mega-banks (shortly ago thirteen) whose influence over the operations of both Congress and the Executive is destructive of democracy. This, because the merger of excessive corporate wealth and power with political power constitutes a “Ruling Oligaechy”, serving not the interests of the people, but only the accumulation of power and wealth in the hands of the few.
