Becoming Russia

I like to think of the ACORN scandal as another indicator of how corroded our society has become in the wake of thirty years of bi-partisan privatization. When our common wealth is looted at the top, what’s left at the bottom is a culture of crude criminal enterprise. I saw this when my alma mater folded a couple years back as the result of white trust funder trustees in cahoots with Black con artists who made their bones in HUD scams of an earlier era.

As our social fabric unravels further, criminality will continue to infect all classes as a matter of survival. We are in essence, becoming Russia.
