This is your country on neoliberalism.
If the Democrats don’t embrace populism and start defending the public against courage America, we will be a one party state.
“Our landlords say we have to pay rent and late fees and every day it is going up,” Fuentes said. “We are paying rent for somewhere we can’t live in. They said ‘you aren’t the only ones in this situation’, but what are we supposed to do? We don’t have any money. We don’t have anything.”

The idea that the truth of God can be bound in any human system, by any human creed, by any human book…
[to me that idea sounds pretty darn arrogant; it shows the arrogant idea that man is making the rules and thus bigger than God], is almost beyond imagination to me…
I mean: God is not a Christian… God is not a Jew or a Moslim or a Hindu, a Buddhist, all of those are human systems, which human beings have created to try to help us walk into the mystery of God. I honour my tradition, I walk through my tradition, but I don’t mean my tradition defines God…I think it only points me to God”
