Feudalism is Returning!
Bill Moyers at his best!
“and I had been the beneficiary of public schools, public libraries, public parks, public roads, and two public universities. How could I not think that what had been so good for me would be good for others, too?”
This very well sums up the idea that things that are for the good of the public are very important to the success of the the country and ALL of its people. So while Henry Ford, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Walt Disney, William Harley & Arthur Davidson, and Mark Zuckerberg (to name just a few) may have built hugely successful and important American companies, they could not have succeeded without education and infrastructure to make those companies successful.
The rich are essentially trying to create a new “feudalism” where all the money and power reside in the hands of just a few of the most elite. They are trying to create a world of lords and surfs. And the evidence shows they are largely succeeding!
