To The American Patriots
The main cause of the disempowerment of the American people is the corruption of democracy by powerful economic forces. As a solution, many seek to revitalize democracy and gain independence from the tyranny of corporations. But this independence is not likely to come through efforts to revitalize political democracy. The American people should instead embrace a movement for economic democracy. The call for economic democracy could rally Americans around a common purpose and create a common agenda to replace the tyranny of corporate power with the economic empowerment of the people.
