MANCHILD IN A PROMISED
Dear Mr. Lewis:
I had trouble with your article because I think
you are sympathetic to Michael Jackson, but you got suckered
in by the media frenzy over the case and failed to grasp what
were the real issues, which are political, not psychological.
Michael Jackson is not a pedophile. The evidence supports this,
the courts agreed with the evidence, and as you correctly state,
pedophiles don’t announce to the world that they invite
children into their bedrooms for overnight sleep ins.
The charges brought against Mr. Jackson were meant
to divert the public from the real McCarthy-like witch-hunt
that has been going on for years. The question we must ask is
who stands most to gain by Corporation Michael Jackson’s
fall? The answer is corporate America.
Corporation Michael Jackson (Neverland) runs in
the opposite direction as Corporate America (Disneyland). Corporate
America rewards itself first (100ds of millions for its CEOs),
then its shareholders, and only then its employees, those who
do the menial work, who run the show. Disneyland was built by
minimum wage workers and is sustained by ticket sales. At $200
one-day entry for a family of 4, Disneyland is off limits to
America’s poor: its Afro American and Hispanic populations.
Michael Jackson paid for Neverland out of his own pocket. ENTRY
IS FREE. Thanks to Corporation Michael Jackson the poor now
have access to a kind of Disneyland.
Michael Jackson is a role model on how a corporation
should behave. Michael Jackson shares his wealth with the poor;
he cares for the poor, and is the thorn in the side of corporate
America. He shames corporate America. He embarrasses corporate
America. He is an example that corporate America can’t
live with which is why they have spent years trying to trump
up a case against him, to bring him down, to bankrupt him, to
make him sell his copyright ownership of Beatles music, which
sustains his corporation.
Michael Jackson is the lone corporate socialist
in an America founded on unbridled capitalism and they will
continue to hound him until he breaks or disappears. What corporate
America fears is not Michael Jackson’s behavior, it’s
In the full glare of the media Michael Jackson
was robbed of his dignity. What this caring human being was
subjected to is America’s shame.
