Haunting our times

We live in odd times. I hadn’t expected that. I would have thought there’d be much warmth and celebration by now, working in a global ‘camp kitchen’ somehow. Not this rude stuff again. Yes, I feel somewhat surprised by it. And gullible.

I’ve just watched a video on YouTube, “Nickel and Dimed“. Has me irked.

Barbara Ehrenreich is featured in this musical excerpt made by The American Ruling Class, a “dramatic-documentary-musical” starring Harper’s Magazine editor emeritus Lewis Lapham.

“Divine madness” says The Montreal Mirror.

One commentor under the video said, “I first saw this on Bill Moyer’s Journal on KCET here in Los Angeles…. The premise is clear. The working class are the silent majority that will rise someday against the corporate machine, i.e. WalMart, and will get a decent wage. This is not propaganda, but truth.”

I enjoy the word irk.
