    that they live in a violent country, and at some point this shit just won't fly anymore and someone is going to snap and get violent.  I honestly can't believe that no one has gone after these folks yet.  I'm not saying we should support violence, but at some point it seems like it would have happened.  You can only kick so many people out of their homes and fire them before someone does something.

    The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

    •  They used to fear communism (7+ / 0-)

      and they were willing to allow the middle class a modicum of comfort to prevent communism. But now that communism is gone, they fear nothing. And since they have no inner moral compass (an inherent feature of capitalism), only fear can keep them in check.

      Either we put fear back into them, or junk capitalism, or live as their chattel.

      •  They are fools (3+ / 0-)

        Communism was just one form of worker organization for resistance.  People will only take so much shit before they react.  We're getting nearer and nearer to that as we speak.
