Appreciating Aaron | Participatory Politics Foundation | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it

I had the privilege of knowing Aaron Swartz, who passed away yesterday, over the past seven years. He was a truly incredible person, and his work was inspirational to me personally and our non-profit PPF’s mission – and that of our sibling organizations, the Participatory Culture Foundation and Fight For the Future. Aaron was sui generis for real.

Little Rock: The Waltons Pull a Fast One and Buy Another School for Conversion to Charter

Little Rock: The Waltons Pull a Fast One and Buy Another School for Conversion to Charter | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Arkansas belongs to the Walton family, the richest family in the U.S., which runs the state like its personal plantation. If the Waltons cared about children, they might focus their spending on child health and well-being in Arkansas, but instead they spend $200 million a year spreading charters where they are not wanted. The family…
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
How to buy yourself a Nation that was once America...America was once the land of a government for the people by the people". The new remake is a rich harvest for mega rich American and other oligarchs. These are the times when everything that was once public is now packaged to be a private or usually corporate buy. Public control be damed in a libertarian Atlas Shrugged world of the rich ruling and controlling the world. Guess what? We can still push back and hold our nation for all of us, but not by sitting on our hands and letting the Trumps, Gates, Waltons or Putin Types make our. Decisions for us or allowing big money to buy our policy makers. You won't hear hardly anything in the corporate news media... they answer to their wealthy sponsors and can only go so far and take sponsors to push. Did any one fact check the expensive prime time tuition free, taxpayer fed, private, K-12 online school ads? I did! Not good news!
