  •  All good points. If you go a little further back (0+ / 0-)

    in history, you can also see that citizens of any civilization that get stomped on hard enough - will always rise up against those doing the stomping.  Some uprisings are successful, others are not.  I think that the situation in America at this moment is similar to the 'Gilded Age', and it took a lot for Americans to win that battle (and years of work).  If things continue the way they are going right now, the situation will be worse than the Gilded Age.  Income disparity, and wealth disparity are in fact, higher now than they were before and during the Great Depression.
    I feel (just me) like things are so bad, for so many, that this is different somehow.  All the diaries, comments, and even arguments we have here won't stop an uprising if there is enough pain.  More pain is on the way.
