    There is a battle underway in this nation, and most are unaware of its existence. First we saw an escalation of the cost of elections, favoring the corporate donors power over legislation. Then came the consolidation of the news media, limiting what the public was told and destroying the essential need of any democracy; the dissemination of truth. The destruction of the education system is a natural progression and no one should be shocked by it.

    What is shocking is the silence about most of the above.
