While Wall Street and corporate profits recover and reach new heights, the vast majority of Americans have experienced something of an apocalypse: a disclosure of something hidden from the majority of humankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception.
The "middle class," supposedly the group encompassing the majority of Americans, has been eviscerated by economic crises in health care, predatory lending and austerity. Instead of being "middle class," these people now find themselves squarely among the "99%."
How did this happen? This vast group of Americans has been searching for answers, and they're finding none in the sycophantic insider press or the whitewashed TV "news."
