Alternet has the post Neighbors From Hell: Now Parents Have a Bedtime Story About How Predatory America Has Become.
It came in a vision a few years back: a book for children that approximated some of the horrors of society that everyday people face, and the monstrous qualities that many people take on as they try to earn a living. Especially since the financial crisis. Mortgage loan officers, slumlords, private prison lobbyists are the new growth industry jobs.
Fairy tales of yore had to invent fictional monsters to scare little children. Is it a sign of progress that now all we have to do is to tell the truth to scare little children?
