Supreme Court inaugurates the Corporatocracy

America has been gradually turned into a country of, by, for corporations. The Supreme Court has put the final nail in the coffin of American democracy, by removing all restrictions on the use of corporate money in federal campaigns.

Remedial legislation is likely to be impossible - the Supreme Court will rule it to be unconstitutional. I think, just like with slavery, a constitutional amendment will be necessary. However, getting such an amendment in the face of the money that corporations can throw against it is going to be next to impossible.

Essentially, the US of A is moving to a situation where governance is no longer responsive to the citizens, and only a revolution can bring about change.
