Zombie Politics

"It is difficult to imagine that anyone looking at a society in which an ultra-rich financial elite and mega-corporations have the power to control almost every aspect of politics -- from who gets elected to how laws are enacted -- could possibly mistake this social order and system of government for a democracy."
       -- Henry Giroux, "Zombie Politics and Culture in the Age of Casino Capitalism" (2010)
