Imagine: I had a dream

Imagine if America was a dictatorship…”

  • “You could let 1% of the people have all the nation’s wealth.
  • You could help your rich friends get richer (…)
    and bailing them out when they gamble and lose.
  • You could ignore the needs of the poor for healthcare and education.
  • Your media would appear free but would secretly be controlled by 1% (…)
  • You could wiretap phones.
  • You could torture foreign prisoners.
  • You could have rigged elections.
  • You could lie about why you go to war!
  • You could fill your prisons with one particular racial group
    and no one would complain.
  • You could use the media to scare the people
    into supporting policies that are against their interests!

I know, it is hard for you, Americans, to imagine. But please, try…” (1)
