    things have to go,in order to make the scales tip. Right now, things are more out of whack than they have ever been in our lifetimes, and it's become commonplace (at least around here) to consider this the second Gilded Age.

I, for one, would not want to live through another Great Depression, nor need blood shed in the interests of labor, to right ourselves once more. I'm not optimistic that will happen.
