  •  As Chris Hayes pointed, there's $10 trillion (8+ / 0-)

    in oil assets (actually $20T has been estimated, but he halved it for the skeptics), which, ironically, is a figure similar to that of the slave assets just before the Civil War.

    We are basically asking the Oligarchs to forgo $10 to $20 Trillion. As with the Civil War, they will fight to protect their assets.

    So we need to do one or more of the following:

    1) figure out a way to buy them out.
    2) take on a war effort funded entirely by citizens working together to
    a) Build solar and wind assets for personal and community use;
    b) (And with car companies and credit unions (?)) to convert everyone over to electric cars.
    4) Divestment and shaming.

    When the rich have tripled their share of the income and wealth yet again, Republicans will still blame the poor and 3rd Way Democrats will still negotiate.
