Bob Marley got it right: It's war. Everywhere is war. It has been war for a long time. But now that war is more overt than at any time since the Gilded Age, the time back to which our plutocrats and their elected lackeys are busily bulldozing our society and our politics.
Yesterday's US House vote on the American Health Care Act and the recent introduction of the risibly named Financial Choice Act have delivered a spiteful jolt to my third eye. Even if We the People are not on a war footing, the plutocratic establishment types are, along with their minions in Washington and various state capitals.
The top 1% (more or less), through their political puppets and their police, are waging war against poor people, against working people, against people of color, against LGBT+ people, against the natural environment, against anyone or anything standing between the 1% and increased profits.
