The American middle-classes have never and will never take to the streets to vent anger about anything, ever. Despair and quiet grumbling and prescription drugs is as far as it goes over here. But wouldn’t it feel…well, therapeutic on some level if something could happen in the streets of the U.S. of A. that would express basic fundamental rage about how the corporate elites are turning (have turned?) this country into South America, and how the radical legislative right has gone completely insane, etc.?
I know what’s going on in England right now — young have-nots are enraged at drastic cuts in social spending by David Cameron‘s conservative government. It’s obviously a vastly different picture and climate, but this country so needs to get mad, mad, Peter Finch-mad.
