Citizens or Consumers? The Zen of Citizenship.
Bill Moyers asks...which are we?
During an interview today with Terry Gross, Bill Moyers reiterates a point I have often made. Bush, the GOP, treats Americans, and indeed, the world...as consumers. I swear this is true.
John Kerry must make it damn clear that he does not. He must make it damn clear that he treats us, and other peoples of the world...as citizens.
The business of America is not just business.
This is just a trick of language.
But what business is the people's business...should be good business.
Bla bla bla...
