Human World Order
The establishment must do everything it can to suppress unity among the growing herd of angry citizens. However, victory for the people is within our grasp. In a dangerous scenario for the establishment, populists from the left and the right are increasingly finding common ground. A recent Mother Jones article titled "Tea Party or Pot Party?" revealed to progressives that they can actually agree with Tea Party libertarians on issues such as legalizing marijuana. With an honest look at each other's principles we may find that what unites Populists is far more powerful than what divides us.
First, we must be cognizant that the establishment seeks to divide us by using such vile tactics as labeling progressives as "evil communists" and the Tea Party libertarians as "racists." Naturally, old-school civil rights liberals hate racists, and free-market conservative purists hate communists. Can we not see that the establishment knows precisely what buttons to push to keep us from uniting? These false labels are irrelevant in our current struggle with a tyrannical Corporate State.
It is clear that we the people are all suffering in similar ways under the current system. We grasp for someone to blame for this manufactured suffering, and the establishment is all too eager to provide a culprit to misdirect our anger. Progressives have been conditioned to blame big evil corporations, while conservatives have been conditioned to blame big evil government. But now, both are finally realizing that corporate cartels and the government have merged into a most evil monster that cares not for them, or the health of America for that matter. Even Michael Moore is waking up to the fact that Obama is a mere puppet of the corporate masters.
The people have been fooled and divided for long enough. Now, we must go beyond phony labels that the establishment has carefully crafted for us, and join our fellow populists to unite around our common human principles.
Here are five co-dependent principles that unite populist progressives and tea party libertarians:

Watching Dylan Ratigan and seeing Cenk Uygur debate some Tea Partiers has brought this to my attention. The devil is in the details, but the underlining message is pretty powerful. While I can't co-sign EVERY statement this article makes, but it is useful for fueling debate in a a society where we are increasingly being forced into serfdom, oligarchy, plutocracy: whatever you want to call it, where democracy dies.
