    It's a very daunting problem for the average reasonable person to know much of anything relevant and accurate about the country or our history these past 40 years. We're seeing in the unions and Occupy the very, very earliest glimmerings of recognition.

    Everybody knows that things suck, but at at this point so little is commonly understood about how and why, that consensus solutions right now will give us at best a 3rd way slower conservative decline.

      I've been closely following the OWS movement and my sense is that they definitely get the how and why. I do agree that given the extent of corruption it's difficult to filter through the BS, so I was surprised that OWS seemed to have managed to do precisely that. And now they're educating the rest of America.
