Having declared health care "not a right" in his infamous WSJ op-ed piece, Whole Foods CEO John Mackey did an interview
with the libertarian Reason Magazine - Rush Limbaugh: "A good, good
magazine" - to defend free markets and "conscious capitalism." No
wonder he sells $5 flavored water and $17/lb. cheese.

Mackey on post-Cold-War capitalism: "We won, but people didn't
come to love capitalism. People are always attacking it for being
greedy and selfish and only caring about money."

FRIENDS: Help Us Fight

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
