Jurgis Rudkus is the very exemplar of the American Dream crushed by greed. This is a populist blog dedicated to all of those who send their children to bed hungry and cold because they can no longer afford the basic things that all of us need. They have been thrown out of jobs and homes because they are breaking “rules” that they are forced to break by the very system that established those rules. It’s time to change the system and time to change the rules. It’s time to rise up, not like dogs because we have been beaten, but like human beings, in spite of being beaten. It’s a long struggle. Join me as I document this struggle as best I can.
