- Corruption is the #1 key issue. A great many of
our other problems can be seen as consequences of the fundamental
corruption issue. For details, see section 1. There is
a proverb that says: Pay attention to the thing you care about.
That means we need to keep the corruption issue front-and-center. We
need to avoid distractions.
- This is a fixable problem. The simplest and most direct way to
fix it is to demand that the Department of Justice enforce the
existing bribery laws. See section 2.
- The Citizens United decision is ridiculous, but it is only a
small part of the problem. See section 3. There is no way of
overturning the decision anytime soon, but that’s not fatal, because
there are other ways of attacking the corruption problem.
- Corporate personhood is not the issue, not even a little bit.
It is at least two jumps removed from being the real issue. See
section 4. If you focus attention on corporate
personhood, you just make yourself look foolish.
