Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy?

Vast in its reach yes but not in its origin. In the new New Yorker Jane Mayer exposes Koch Industries and David H. Koch as the backer of almost every right-wing "think-tank" as well as of corporate fronts like Americans for Prosperity, Freedomworks and their "tea party" movement designed to work along with FOX (which they also fund) to undermine progress in general and anything which might impede maximum profits for major industries; particularly Oil and insurance.

What is clearly demonstrated here is the completely corrupt nature or US politics warped by the unrestrained power of capital and the need at very least to impose restraints on the influence of wealth as well as its impossibility within this system.
