  •  Some people are antagonists. The Republican (0+ / 0-)

    party has become their home. While their antagonism has no rational basis, they can tolerate the objects of their hatred, if they can somehow exploit them. The monetizing of the economy has made it possible to hide their antagonism and disguise their predation behind the numbers. Percentages make it particularly easy to turn the screws and squeeze ever more out of the working population for the delectation of the "elites."
    The antagonists aren't, as one might think, anti-social. They are associated by their shared antagonisms and exclusive of those who don't hate. "Exclusive" neighborhoods and "gated communities" are the evidence on the ground. Their locks and keys secure them from the knowledge that most people wouldn't want to live that way, if you paid them.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
