I find myself returning to common themes in these Blogs over the years. One of those themes is definitely the erosion of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, an erosion sponsored by, engineered by and supported by corporate vested interests and corporate money. The effort has been ongoing ever since the late 1970's, when the Reagan administration first made unholy alliance to beef up the Federal Chamber of Commerce and change it into a propaganda arm whose power has waxed considerably since then. Supported by billions in corporate sponsorship (that money solely directed to eroding individual rights to hold corporations accountable for wrongdoing), the effort to kill the jury system and prevent individuals from having redress against corporations has been largely successful.
