PBS: Banks, corporations own the government

American Democracy is in a lot of trouble. The banks and large corporations, often anonymously through tax-exempt nonprofit organizations, own, or are well on their way to owning governments at the federal, state and local level. In case you missed it, watch the PBS POV episode “Dark Money.” (1 hr., 23 min.) (https://www.pbs.org/show/pov/). Note that it’s not just Montana and Wisconsin they’re talking about. You may also want to read Jane Mayer’s book “Dark Money.” Also visit Move to Amend at https://movetoamend.org/. Stay tuned for an opportunity to take action locally.
