Re: Gazillionaire to his fellows

Have I mentioned here before that discussing nation trend in inequality in a global economy is meaningless.   Globally the trend in inequality has been toward less inequality.  The poor around the world are gaining at the expense of labor in the USA.   If that is not a trend you care for, then address it for what it really is, globalism.

As a result, Progressives, from the beginning of the last century down to the present day, have never lacked for opportunities to reconstruct the American regime by craftily employing a language of democratic populism.

 

The result, intentional or not, has been the creation of the very oligarchic state Progressives claimed to oppose. By arguing and governing as if politics is principally about the distribution of wealth (“who gets what, when, and how,” as leading Progressive political scientist Harold Lasswell put it), they managed to assemble, in the federal government, all the means necessary to control that distribution. As a result, controlling the state means controlling wealth.

Re: Gazillionaire to his fellows

Somebody should do a plagiarism search on that pile of dung. . Most likely would find passages plucked off from some business or trade journal penned in 1840.

Sounds like you are lining up with Piketty. Be careful out on that ledge. He's not flying with your libo friends.

Good Stuff, Sam

I am sure the author plagiarized the line about how easily the chosen one slipped from community organizer to Martha's vineyard celebrity from some 1840's treatise, too.

 

If our dear comrade Borass gets his dander up about something, it is a good barometer that it is worty of reading.

Re: Gazillionaire to his fellows

I can see why you chose the 1840's as your start of time.

Re: Good Stuff, Sam

No argument here about that, and republican progressives are just as guilty as democrat fruitcakes on that. Its just that we now actually have a protest movement within the republican party to try to walk back some of the "progress" whereas on the left, we have guys such as Borass continually coming up with more support for even more "progressivism".

 

You wonder how a guy like that even learned to chew his own carrots.
