Also, in regards to Hitchens, I actually had the chance to see him speak at my University several months ago. Fucking fantastic, and he tore any and all individuals up who were stupid enough to try and pull old propagandist arguments up. Giant asshole, but damn does that man know how to speak/reason.
I think the benefits that the banking industry has enjoyed from all these billions of dollars in taxpayer "bailouts" (that have provided no relief to the actual taxpayers) are a clear indication that the banking industry is quite inseparable from the government at this point.
