Mother Jones Defends Establishment

Well I thought I had seen it all. But I had not. Mother Jones has sided against us.

For years I listened to Lefties in academia. They could not say anything without working in the word "corporation", as Team America satirized so well (note: I've met Tim, he is a fine, smart guy: I just think this is a funny clip that illustrates my point). They decry markets without knowing, in general, what they are talking about. They complain about unseemly relationships among corporations, government officials, and the corporate press.

But now they are faced with an actual series of events, entirely documented, whereby the public has been ripped off by the corporations that dominate our capital market while the government issued hall passes and the captured press obediently refused to report even when their faces were shoved into the data. In short, they have been handed precisely the situation that they have been fantasizing about for years. And what do they do? They say it is all far too improbable, and defend the Establishment.

Here is the Mother Jones article I'm talking about.  If you feel like doing so, leave a comment.
