“It is often forgotten that the United States only became a full-fledged democracy in 1964 with the passage of the Voting Rights Act. Only then was citizenship extended to African Americans”

We’re so easily distracted by Hollywood, McDonalds, and all the other consumeristic charms (is that even a word?), that these simple facts are easily forgotten. Yet America presents itself to the world as a mature democracy, when in fact it’s being proven to be nothing more than a corporatocracy instead (is THAT even a word?). Viva OWC! 🙂
