An All-American Truth


British author Kenneth Allsop was writing about the Great Depression in this quote but it rings true today…

American has always been saved by the citizen’s guilt. In no other nation in the world and in history has the ordinary taxpayer been so eager to acquit his government of criminal negligence, so unwilling to convict industrial barons of robbery with violence, of murder by evisceration. With the sacrificial alacrity of a fundamental Bolshevik, the beaten American has elected his own treason trial and confessed to the commission of failure and the omission of prosperity.
-Kenneth Allsop (Hard Travelin’)
