More Tales from the Oligarchy

Rich asshole in Shawnee, Oklahoma uses his petty authority to abuse and brutalize the homeless. Film at eleven!

This story encapsulates two disturbing trends: the power of the oligarchy to use political power to pursue personal wealth and the ongoing rise in demonization of the poor. It’s particularly poignant that most of the homeless in Shawnee are Indians…homeless in their own country, their land stolen out from under them.

Meanwhile, the United States as a whole continues to fall in standard-of-living rankings with other industrialized nations. Welcome to Galt’s Gulch!
