Bernie Sanders - On Wall Street protests

"Anyone with eyes open knows that the gangsterism of
Wall Street -- financial institutions generally -- has
caused severe damage to the people of the United States
(and the world). And should also know that it has been
doing so increasingly for over 30 years, as their power
in the economy has radically increased, and with it
their political power. That has set in motion a vicious
cycle that has concentrated immense wealth, and with it
political power, in a tiny sector of the population, a
fraction of 1%, while the rest increasingly become what
is sometimes called "a precariat" -- seeking to survive
in a precarious existence. They also carry out these
ugly activities with almost complete impunity -- not
only too big to fail, but also "too big to jail."
Noam Chomsky

'The courageous and honorable protests underway in Wall
Street should serve to bring this calamity to public
attention, and to lead to dedicated efforts to overcome
it and set the society on a more healthy course."
