Great post by Krugman "Paranoia of the Plutocrats" in yesterday Times. His arguments and economic analysis combined with the clarity of writing superb as usual. Yet, it is not what is most striking in his post. It is Krugman's mentioning of
The example many are buzzing about right now is the billionaire investor Tom Perkins, a founding member of the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. In a letter to the editor of The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Perkins lamented public criticism of the “one percent” — and compared such criticism to Nazi attacks on the Jews, suggesting that we are on the road to another Kristallnacht.what made us think about absurdity of Progressive Kristallnacht prophecy.
It is most amazing that the Wall Street powerful "geniuses" who almost blew-up the world's economy, suffer from the Victimization Complex blaming Occupy the Wall Street for "Kristallnacht". They need urgently talk to their shrinks because when they use their metaphors they sound like lunatics who proclaims themselves as Napoleon.
If any normal person would use this line of comparison it would be more logically to compare Rupert Murdoch to Joseph Goebbels, Wall Street bankers to arsonists who set Reichstag on fire and then organized Kristallnacht blaming Occupied the Wall Street kids for both the fire and destruction.
