The July-Aug, 2014 issue of the venerable Progressive is featuring a series of article about the octopus-grab of the plutocrats behaving poorly. One major article is on Charles and David Koch and the family's vastly increased and effective drive to get rid of about everything progressives value. I am sure this is familiar territory to Kos readers, but the issue is worth looking at and Lisa Grave's piece on the Koch Conspiracy is an insightful summary of their gains so far. The title: The Koch Cartel: Their Reach, Their Reactionary Agenda, and Their Record.
(I've been unable to find a link to an html version of this on-line. I've downloaded the article in PDF form, and am checking on permission to share it in the context of this dairy.)
As I read the piece, however, I started understanding that they are truly trying -- and succeeding -- to wrest our democracy from the hands of the many and turning it all over to the "private" sector. Or just get rid of it all together.
Then without thinking much about it, suddenly the words "sedition" and "subversive" grabbed by attention. While technically, they cannot be charged with treason (this requires being in a state of war), I do not see why they could not be charged with sedition and/or subversion. Even if there was only the effort, it would provide an accurate interpretation of what they actually are doing -- and succeeding at accomplishing at the present.
