Bill Moyers: A Plutocracy Ruled by Self-Centered Jerks?

Moyers, a wise man, wraps up this well reasoned essay with a chilling forecast:

 “When economic inequality increases, the people who have become economically more powerful will often attempt to use that power in order to gain even more political power.

And that sort of political inequality is the real danger that’s facing the United States.”
