“In the case of the [University of California] regents, you have millionaires and billionaires using their political connections to shape markets and reap personal gain. Thus it should be no surprise when the regents are virtually silent when the university uses violence to stop protests. The wealthy always rely on state-sanctioned violence to impose austerity measures and protect their corporate welfare.”

–Bob Samuels. “Connecting the Dots to Expose the 1 Percent Governing UC.” California Teacher Nov./Dec. 2011: 15.
