  •  Not stupid, evil (4+ / 0-)

    The wealthy have long since met any basic need, and really any need at all.  At this point, wealth is just keeping score - more is more, which for greedheads is necessarily good.  They want to be on top of the pile, and the size of the pile is immaterial since the actual physical part of having wealth has ceased to have meaning.  What matters to plutocrats is that you and I have less than they do so policies that grow the pile run counter to that goal.  I don't see that as stupid on their part, just evil.  

    The physical suffering of peons is not a bug, it's a feature.  The exercise of power is supposed to hurt its target - that's the point.  Once we learn to reciprocate that intention, we will be on the way to doing something about it.
