The Supremes and the Oligarchy
June 26, 2013
First, the Supremes strike down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act and then, second, it rules that part of DOMA, Defense of Marriage Act, is unconstitutional and allows a lower court ruling allowing California to legalize gay and lesbian marriage to stand. What to make of this?
I believe it is pretty simple actually: Gay and lesbian marriage is not a threat to the oligarchy, whereas voting rights are. End of story.
