US Nudges out Imperial Rome in Wealth Inequality

The Roman empire, apparently, was less unequal in its wealth distribution than is the US today. Both corporations and Roman legions would gain market share. Both would shift wealth back up the chain to the Emperor or CEO. Both would subordinate human resources (slaves or wage slaves) in hierarchies. But we do it slightly better already, and we just keep getting better at it. This is because we (we meaning Corporations) are Free and endowed by law with Immortal Life. To say otherwise would be an abuse of Free Speech (meaning corporate lobbying and corruption of the legislature).  A class action lawsuit by the people and for the people charging the Supreme Court with corruption is now pending before the Court. Early indications are that the Supremes will take the case and rule themselves innocent. As well they should. Their job requires that they listen to Free Speech carefully, to make good rulings, weighing the evidence carefully. It is probably not a good time to be complaining about injustice, as Congress and Obama ok using the military to jail without trial anyone an unnamed someone in high places suspects of terrorism, or other trouble making.  I am not sure what it all means but I am sure it would be best in the US as in a Fortune 100 Company or as in Rome under a tryant to speak well of those above us. "Freedom, so goes the song, "is just another name for nothing left to lose." I could still lose enough that smiling like a fool seems the best option. I mean probably Occupy is infilitrated with suspected terrorists, since high officials are so full of suspicion founded or unfounded. If my friends disappear, they must have been bad people, or suspected of it, which is the same thing in America now. Because we are Free. You say otherwise and off you go.
