”This brings me to 2020 and what should be its defining issue, which is crime. Trump’s election, and his policies eliminating a century of business regulation, have thrown gasoline on the fire of a business crime wave unparalleled in our history. There are no longer any rules, or so it seems. You can fire people at will, your waste can destroy their land, air and water, and everything the government touches is for sale to the highest bidder. That’s not capitalism. That’s not even socialism. It’s kleptocracy. It’s Russia."
”This coming election is not about capitalism or socialism. They are not in conflict. It needs to be about criminal behavior vs. honest behavior, ethical behavior vs. unethical behavior."
”There’s a joke that “I won’t believe corporations are people until Texas executes one.”
