MORALITY IN GOVERNMENT

MORALITY IN GOVERNMENT

C-Span rendered an enormous benefit by airing each of Marianne Williamson and Cornel West, both expressing actual morality in government.  To air such voices is of critical importance for the mindset of Americans, who have recently been indoctrinated into acceptance of hierarchical capitalism that on a continuum is organized crime, in place of liberty and democracy. read more
