A thought while watching the first night of the 2004 Democratic Convention

One hundred years ago, TR worked to break the hold of corporations on American life. He almost succeeded. Now, however, every aspect of our life seems driven by corporate interests, not the needs and expectations of people. As a society, we need to change this. The corporate hold on every aspect of our lives needs to be examined and changed. Calvin Coolidge knew what he was saying when he said, "The business of America is business." But being right does not always mean being correct.
