Corporate fascists are ramming Barrett down our throats to consolidate their power and authority. Under the guise of the moral high ground, Barrett is being put forward as a protector of the Constitution.
Her controversial membership in the People of Praise cult along with her views on abortion, are simply distractions from her mission: to be an anti-labor, pro-corporate tool.
Jacobin magazine has published a summary of some of her rulings. It reads like a corporate wish list: limiting enforcement of age discrimination laws; reducing consumer’s rights against predatory lenders; restricting federal agencies’ power to punish companies that mislead consumer’s. More recently she ruled in favor of Grubhub that denied workers overtime pay. She sided with corporations 76% of the time in her 55 cases on the federal court.

Since I published the Janus article, I had almost given up thinking that we can change the direction of our country, as the Supreme Court decided that collective bargaining infringes on Mark Janus’ right to babble. Still, I am fascinated by how the Great Depression, World War II, and the Cold War have transformed the United States in ways unimaginable at the beginning of the 20th Century.
Now, as the 21st century unfolds, these transformations have morphed into a new form of capitalism, surveillance capitalism. As AI takes over the production process, and CO2 keeps rising, we are in a race to find an equitable solution for guaranteeing a humane and flourishing world that will remain green and hospitable for human habitation.
Philosophy, weak as it is, may yet show us the way back. Questions that go won’t away. Questions that will plague our dreams. Yes, Master Po, what is the Way?
