Thank u for that information.
It sounds like thay DESERVED to lose their jobs.
Yes David they surely did deserved to loss their jobs but the problem is far greater then that.
The current government system and how we fund elections and the cost of access to the public media give far too must power/influence to the super rich compare to all the rest of us.
I do not think that the super rich should not have great influence in the public square however we had gone so far to the extreme that our Republic is beginning to resemble the Roman Republic near it end. With a ever smaller and less powerful middle class to act as a flywheel between the super rich and the poor.
The Rome mob that were control by bread and circus by the end of the Rome Republic was a few generations before the very backbone of that society.
They was the independent small land owners who supply the men to man the legions and they were loyal to Rome not any one leader. Their votes could not be purchase for bread or circus.
Then the upper class of the Roman society purchase the land and combine the small landholdings into great estates and ran those estates with slaves.
The gold and the slaves to created and run those estates for the upper class came from the victories of the legionnaires/farmers.
In any case there came to be no Rome small farmers IE no Rome middle class, the lower level Romans was depended on the upper class and was more then willing to sell their votes and the legions was man by mercenaries not farmers doing a tour in their military.
Whole legions were privately own at that point and not under the control of the state.
David in my opinion if we do not address the ever widening gap of wealth between the super rich and the rest of society our Republic will end in anything but name at best.
We are now seeing that one billionaire can override the wishes of millions of citizens even now.
Footnote the founding fathers model our system to a great degree on the Rome Republic model.
