    Default Privatization Starts Fires: How States Can Put Them Out

    Free markets don't work for utilities says Greg Palast, instead it leaves everyone burnt. But state governments can take over these companies. We have the blue print.

    Wildfires destroying people’s homes in California and people dying because they can’t afford their insulin are the same thing. Both are examples of how corporations have risen up and taken over the legislative process, turning the power of government to their own ends of ever greater profits. This was all made possible by the Supreme Court in the late 1970s in a series of decisions that said that when billionaires and corporations buy and own politicians, that is "free speech" rather than bribery and therefore cannot be regulated. We must overturn these corrupt decisions by the Supreme Court if we are to return the American political system to the American people and thus restore democracy to America.
