My Story as Told by Water

Written by David James Duncan

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war, corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption is high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavour to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed".

The writer: Abraham Lincoln. And the arguably less honest but even more visionary Thomas Jefferson, half a century before Lincoln, expressed the same fear in these words: "I hope we will crush in its birth the aristocracy of our moneyed corporations, which dare already to challenge our government to a trial of strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country".
