Money and Politics

The word “oligarchy” gets thrown around a lot in progressive discourse, usually to highlight the problem of money in politics, but not many people seem to really settle in and grapple with the hefty implications of what that word actually means. If you say that America is an oligarchy (and it certainly is, which we’ll get to in a second), you’re not merely saying that there is too much money in US politics or that the wealthy have an unfair amount of power in America. Per definition, you are saying that a small class of elites rule over you and your nation, like a king rules over his kingdom.

Another Exhibition Opportunity?

I was contacted by the Vero Beach chapter of the Audubon Society to do a talk on my "Vanishing Florida" project.  We've agreed on January 15th as the day at the Community Center.  Further talks resulted in the possibility of doing an exhibit at the Audubon House, also in Vero.  We've scheduled for this Tuesday, June 27th, for me to visit the Audubon House to see if it can accommodate an exhibit.  More to come.

Abandoned Cemeteries

I visited two abandoned cemeteries on Florida's west coast on Saturday. I am curious to find out what happened to these families and if any still are alive elsewhere. Stay tuned.

Corporate Media

Corporate media pundits do not exist to deliver journalism. Corporate media pundits exist to serve as attack dogs for the establishment.
