Wall Street has captured the State

Wall Street has captured the State
Of this there can be no debate
Their power will rise
As liberty dies
And standards of living deflate

RT News (1)

Don't take this as an out of hand dismissal of their articles, but I think the Russian propaganda machine is using the internet to do to everybody else what satellite TV did to them back in the 80s. I'm sure their "Wall Street" is no less corrupt than ours, and might even be behind many of the stories. Sometimes I think that the identity of the messenger is designed to discredit the message. The cold war is still alive and well. It's just working a different angle.

In the particular case of RT, I find Russia's propaganda machine to be a more trustworthy source than our own internal propaganda machine. After all, it was the former that provided me with the last third-party debate, and the it was the latter that conspired to keep those candidates' voices silenced.
