Poverty Returns with Misguided Policy by Franz Segbers

http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2017/04/434586.shtml

The state should represent the public interest and yet private or special interests are in the driver’s seat with privatization, deregulation and liberalized markets.

Trump’s proposed 2018 budget is a sledgehammer with cuts to EPA, Meals-on-Wheels, school lunches, WIC food assistance, PBS, Legal Services Corp and more. The state should not be the “errand boy” for the banks (Bill Moyers). Majority rule must be balanced by minority protection for the state to be legitimate (Lani Guinier). Indifference is love’s enemy. The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.
