3 things that would, in my eyes, lead to a fixing of many other things in our society. (aside from ending the wars and taxing the hell out of the rich)

1) reinstate the fairness doctrine.

2) reinstate glass-steagall

3) employee free choice act

Just think what would happen if these three things happened.

The media propaganda machine would come to a screeching halt, regulation would return to the savings/loan/banking industry and lastly, but not least, workers would be able to openly organize unions without fear (well, at least without getting their heads busted open).

Simple things that would have had such grand implications.

But alas, here we are.
