It has taken over governments; now it's taking over community development and philanthropic institutions. We are told not to fight it at the local level because it's so easy for businesses to move to "friendlier" places. So our Mayor and City Council are totally captured by them, putting all our capital in big banks, letting the usual suspects manage our pension fund, and constantly looking for ways to cut taxes on the 1% and their corporate tools. Somehow we have to turn from that thinking and realize that the 1% will never relinquish the power they have at any level of government. So we have to fight them wherever we can, and for those of us who live in Philly, that means here.</p> Sun, 22 Jul 2012 23:58:45 +0000 Stan Shapiro comment 38354 at http://youngphillypolitics.com
