United States Cultural Piece

by Richard A. Baraka

Overview
The concentration of wealth and power, held in the hands of a few, has influenced the political landscape of America since its inception. Today, the campaign financing of the political elites consistently ensures the agenda of the ruling class takes precedent over the will of the masses. United States Cultural Piece explores how this impacts America not only politically, but economically and morally—while explaining how the spirit of the everyday American has historically led to grassroots movements to infuse humanity into our laws and practices, with the goal of putting people and the environment over profits and corporate power. Only when we legislate with the intent to protect our people, rather than to increase the profits of a few, do Freedom, equality and justice for all become a reality for all Americans.
Description
The concentration of wealth and power, held in the hands of a few, has influenced the political landscape of America since its inception. Today, the campaign financing of the political elites consistently ensures the agenda of the ruling class takes precedent over the will of the masses. United States Cultural Piece explores how this impacts America not only politically, but economically and morally—while explaining how the spirit of the everyday American has historically led to grassroots movements to infuse humanity into our laws and practices, with the goal of putting people and the environment over profits and corporate power. Only when we legislate with the intent to protect our people, rather than to increase the profits of a few, do Freedom, equality and justice for all become a reality for all Americans. The current American educational system has always left out the United States cultural piece. History, political science, and social studies have always failed to educate Americans on how our political system impacts class, race, social and environmental justice in American culture. Young people across America are more diverse and humanistic than ever. United States Cultural Piece wishes to educate citizens that the presence of dark money in politics leads to the election of infeffective political leaders. The Party elects consistently ignore the will of the people in order to serve the will of the ruling class: regulatory relief; lower corporate taxes; and laws that promote making money where the ends always justify the means, even when the means are hurting people and the environment. United States Cultural Piece outlines the strategy of the billionaire ruling class and how by rejecting the logic of the opulent minority, we can change this destructive practice that benefits the few at the expense of the masses. The first American Revolution was to escape colonialism and a King's rule. The second American Revolution was to end the imperialism associated with slavery. The third Revolution will be the 99% fighting against the 1% for control of the political, economic and moral direction of our country. The spirit of the American people is rarely matched by our political leadership. Electing law-abiding officials with integrity is paramount to having an enduring Democracy. The time has come to hold our politicians accountable and ask them to either stand with corporate power or with the American people. It is the responsibility of the American people to change the system if the system is corrupt and doesn't work in America's best interest. Together, working in solidarity, we the people can ensure the government is of the people, by the people, and for the people!
