Robert B. Reich
“Socialism is the epithet they have hurled at every advance the people have made,” President Harry Truman observed. It was “what they called public power…bank deposit insurance…free and independent labor organizations…anything that helps all the people.” Every time over the last century Americans have sought to pool their resources for the common good, the wealthy and powerful have used the bogeyman of “socialism” to try to stop them.”
Robert B. Reich, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It

William J. Mann
“In a world where everything is hyped and hawked, where every available space, even the risers of subway steps, is claimed for advertising, Brando’s admonitions against the monetization of the culture, voiced frequently from the 1960s on, feel extremely prescient.”
William J. Mann, The Contender: The Story of Marlon Brando

Robert B. Reich
“Today the great divide is not between left and right. It’s between democracy and oligarchy.”
Robert B. Reich, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It

William J. Mann
“He wanted to feel as if he were—to play on his famous line from On the Waterfront—a “contender,” someone who mattered, someone who had fought the good fight. He wanted to feel as if he had made a difference, left a mark, and not just on acting. What he did not want to be was an “unthinker,” the way he described those people who never examined themselves or their place in the world.”
William J. Mann, The Contender: The Story of Marlon Brando

Robert B. Reich
“Corporations do not automatically obey laws. They weigh the size of the penalty relative to the gain from law breaking. In the age of oligarchy, laws are window dressing when penalties aren’t high enough and the people responsible for the lawbreaking are not held accountable. Unless the government prosecutes individuals or at least claws back their pay, the law is not of particular concern to the inhabitants of C-suites. Eleven years after Wall Street’s near meltdown, not a single major financial executive had been convicted or even indicted for crimes that wiped out the savings of countless Americans. Contrast this with a teenager who is imprisoned for years for selling an ounce of marijuana.”
Robert B. Reich, The System: Who Rigged It, How We Fix It
