The Corporate State Exposed

Capitalism, by its very nature and internal laws, leads to the corrupt rule of money. Ultimately it leads to what Mussolini called "Corporatism" or Fascism or what Georgi Dimitrov called "the brutal dictatorship of the most reactionary elements of financial capitalism." Moyers interviews ex insider Mike Lofgren on the reality of American fascism, how it works and for whom. Lofgren refuses to see a nameable ideology but the pure corruption and power behind the elected government is inevitable under capitalism and is clearly a variety of fascism, devoid of the nationalism of the past because it is the global dictatorship of the 1% of the 1%.
