Grass Roots…

10th October 2011. In these days of resurgent global people power against the morphing of democracy into corporatocracy, I thought it apt to echo the words of Theodore Roosevelt.

“The first truth is that the liberty of a democracy is not safe if the people tolerate the growth of private power to a point where it becomes stronger than their democratic state itself. That, in its essence, is fascism — ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power.”

Note: If you agree that there is a need to separate money from politics, the ‘Occupy’ movement will be holding rallies in major Australian capital cities on 15th October
