FDR’s War on Wall Street

The new president laid down the gauntlet in his inaugural speech on March 4th saying: “The money-changers have fled from their high seats in the temple of our civilization. We may now restore that temple to the ancient truths. The measure of the restoration lies in the extent to which we apply social values more noble than mere monetary profit.”

FDR declared a war on Wall Street on several levels, beginning with his support of the Pecorra Commission which sent thousands of bankers to prison, and exposed the criminal activities of the top tier of Wall Street’s power structure who manipulated the depression, buying political offices and pushing fascism.

I could never claim to be an uncritical fan of Chinese trade with Africa -- having seen up close the kind of crap they export to countries like Mauritania, where I served with the Peace Corps -- but this piece has some teeth. Want to get African nations to take the U.S. more seriously, Trump fans? Well, start maybe by not letting Embassies almost close during the #shutdown... that is, unless we want the convo conducted on Twitter alone...

“Democratic confederalism is understood as a #nation-state democratic nation organization. It provides a framework, within which inter alia minorities, religious communities, cultural groups, gender-specific groups and other societal groups can organize autonomously. This model may also be seen as a way of organizing a democratic nation and #culture. The democratization process in Kurdistan is not limited to matters of form but, rather, propose a broad societal project aiming at economic, social and political sovereignty in all parts of society. It advances the building of necessary institutions and creates the instruments for democratic #self-government and control. It is a continuous and long-term process. Elections are not the only means in this context. Rather, this is a dyna... Show more...
