What It Pays to Starve the People + German Reflections

There's only so much you can take from someone. And with the recent plans to starve some 700,000 Americans, we may have reached that threshold. We dive to the bottom line to uncover the real impetus behind such legislation and the horrifying ways in which we spend money that could - and should – go to we the people. Next up, We don't shut up, we shut down – a message, parallels and lessons from a recent climate court case in Germany
