Hillary Clinton is a Neoliberal Corporatist
Part of this piece is taken from a video I made and posted on my YouTube Channel.
As Jeremy Scahill (a best-selling author and producer of documentary films) put it in an interview on Democracy Now!, "She's a raging Neoliberal...". That means Hillary is a Corporatist, not any kind of Populist... despite the propaganda to the contrary.
Harper's magazine (and the piece was re-posted on Bill Moyers & Company dot com) stated that Ms. Clinton "supported Bush's Iraq madness, Obama's Afghanistan & Libya stupidity, and her husband's pro-banker, pro-deregulation, and pro-'free-trade' policies...". To those of the political Right who might be thinking all that sounds pretty good, you should think again.
Corporatism is NOT Free Market Capitalism. Instead, it's the marriage of the power of the State to the power of Big Business. Both FDR and Mussolini called that Fascism. It's what we've had in the USA (and much of the world) for decades. It's monopolism and Crony Capitalism. It's raping economies around the world, and it's making the Super-Rich richer while shrinking the Middle Class.
The labels "Republican" and "Democrat" essentially are meaningless at the highest political levels. Those labels once meant something; that's no longer true. At the highest levels, the politicians pretty much are all Neoliberals... they are all on the same Team, so to speak.
Not just my opinion. Be Well
p.s. It's not a "conspiracy".
