The top 1% of the top 1% grabs all the wealth
85 people have as much money as three and a half billion other people
That's the old news
We're here to reclaim the house as the People's house
The story is about power, about the decline of democracy
I think in many ways it's the American nightmare
The decline of the nation state
The old idea of the nation state is crumbling around us
This story is about a small group of super-wealthy ruling the United States
Is this the rise of the oligarchs here and throughout the world?
Oligarchs? I mean, it's just [becomes apoplectic]
I am Marwan Bishara and this is Empire.
I like the best.

The Rise of the Oligarchs.
[OLIGARCHY: a government in which a small group exercises control especially for corrupt and selfish purposes.]
