Anger at government, corporations going too far
The Kansas City Star
The arrests this week of five men in plotting to bomb an Ohio bridge indicates that the anger against the government and corporate America has gone too far.
Charges were brought against self-described anarchists who for months were unknowingly working with an FBI informant to take out a bridge connecting two wealthy Cleveland suburbs. The government-bad mania caught on during the presidency of Ronald Reagan.
It never really went away. The Occupy Movement directed a lot of public anger at banks and corporations. The five men had been associated with Occupy Cleveland, however, a spokeswoman for Occupy Cleveland told The Associated Press that the suspects didn’t share the group’s nonviolent views.
It is long past time for the anger toward government and corporations to be directed to positive outcomes to improve living conditions, education and create jobs for people nationwide.
