    relatively richer than absolutely rich? Austerity will ultimate make them less rich, but so long as they're richer, in comparison, that's preferable? I don't know if this qualifies as psychotic, but it's got to be close.

    In any case, all the more reason to not give a flying fuck what they want.

      it's rational when you understand that, like Koch, they only want their fair share:  all of it.

        A less prosperous and productive society means less in real worth to them. They want a bigger slice of a smaller pie. That's psychotic.

        And it IS psychotic--ok, sociopathic--to want everything, because it necessarily means that everyone else has nothing.
