I heard Michael Parenti talking on Alternative Radio this morning on my communtiy station here in Maine ( WERU in Blue Hill). He said that the struggle today is between those who would make the world safe for inequality and those who want to maximize equality.

What's curious to me is that it takes only a very small effort of imagination to see that making the world safe for inequality and all the polarization of wealth that that implies, all the exploitation of people, habitat, and resources, means accelerating the process of environmental degradation and rapidly increasing insustainability. What kind of world do these capitalist ideologues think they will be leaving for their grandchildren? Do they care? Is their sense of entitlement so blinding that they are unable to envision what's coming?
