SUM of all FEARS: Why our Environment & Country are Crashing

Government Corruption & Environmental Destruction

The Corporate Growth Machine of Death Recognized by Citizens

Government corruption tops 5th annual Chapman University survey of American fears,
Chapman University, October 18, 2018.


“...2018 survey revealed that government corruption remains Americans' primary concern, and the state of the environment, which for the first time represents fully half of Americans' top 10 fears.”

"Americans' Top 10 Fears in 2018 (percentages include those who answered afraid or very afraid):

    1. Corrupt government officials (73.6 percent)
    2. Pollution of oceans, rivers and lakes (61.6 percent)
    3. Pollution of drinking water (60.7 percent)
    4. Not having enough money for the future (57 percent)
    5. People they love becoming seriously ill (56.5 percent)
    6. People they love dying (56.4 percent)
    7. Air pollution (55.1 percent)
    8. Extinction of plant and animal species (54.1 percent)
    9. Global warming and climate change (53.2 percent)
    10. High medical bills (52.9 percent"


Bottom Line

In this survey we can see that Americans recognize the greed and corruption that have subverted their government, destroyed their Constitutional Rights, and drained their Wealth while destroying our environment. It is pretty hard not to see, as they are cheating and lying right out in the open, as they take massive bribes from their corporate sponsors, as they tell us they represent us!

The problem is our greedy and corrupt corporate aristocracy dosen’t care, having used exactly these same corrupt practices to subvert our government since their Robber Baron forefathers took over, and replaced the practices and principals our Revolutionary Forefathers had established with open greed & corruption.

During the 1880s the motivations and methods of the selfish, greedy, and aristocratic Robber Barons came to dominate our economy and polity, establishing an aristocracy that our revolution and people had clearly and decisively rejected.

No problem. They just overwhelmed our citizens with, "immigrants," who also put their own personal interests, greed, and desires above the mutually-shared principals of our Constitution, just as our corporate elite is doing today...

Our corporate aristocracy in the 1880s, “led,” our country from practicing the principals and ethics of a Democratic Republic to a system of open greed, corruption, and lies driven by bribery.
This same system dominates both of their wholly corporate-owned parties today, assuring our government remains a corrupted tool of their illegitimate desires for illicit power and wealth, rather than an instrument to control those corrupt desires, and those who practice them.

These are exactly the type of corrupted people our Constitution was meant to control.

Now they control our government, us, our rights and our wealth, and they are using all the tools at their disposal to destroy what remains of our ancient environment to serve their vile corruptions and desires.

Greed is not Good.
