Blame the Supreme Court

Dahlia Lithwick explains that "Blaming Congress for the corporate takeover of American democracy is only half the fun; blaming the Supreme Court is almost better." But Occupy Wall Street is lacking in ambition, she suggests, if it only focuses on Citizens United, she explains:

Of course, if you want to focus the blame somewhere for big business growing ever richer at your expense, by all means start with Citizens United. But trust me, that's not even the interesting part of the story. The paradox is that the little cases we've all missed will hurt the little guy far more.

And there are more to come, she says, from a Roberts Court that has been radically siding with the one percent and signing away the rights of the 99 percent.
