I don't believe all the 1%ers are evil. Just 99% of them.


First the liberal says don't judge the muslims based on the actions of a few.

Then totally FLIP FLOP like a whale out of water.

And judge cops,gun owners,bankers, corporations, republicans,teapartiers the opposite.

There all evil.

Let's create thousands of laws to keep them people on the government reservations!

Worked out so well for the natives didn't it?

Socialism is a social and economic system characterised by social ownership and/or social control of the means of production and co-operative management of the economy

They may have been misogynist, but sharing all resources is Socialism. Many Native American tribes were successfull using this form of cooperative rather than competitive system.

Sorry, I thought the second half of my post would suggest sarcasm in that statement.

Class warfare has happened plenty of times before Marx or Bakunin - there are numerous peasant/slave/class revolts through-out recorded history, predating the mentioned authors by thousands of years.


Class warfare, or the upper class waring amongst themselves for power, has caused the downfall of every society that existed until modern times.

Plato said if it is ever possible to limit the wealth of the upper class both the upper and lower classes would benefit.

Feel free to call it what ever.

Works the same way.

Rob from the rich. Give to the poor. So the poor can go out, and buy more stuff.

Creating trillions in DEBT.

What is slavery? Someone who is forced to work for someone else to eat and have a place to sleep. Sure we may have more privileges now but unless you are an owner you are still a slave.

It is impossible to eliminate slavery. But over time in industrialized nations the slave is now called an employee, and has gained the right to choose his master. This choice pressures slave owners to treat slaves like human beings.

But old school slavery still exists in many non industrialized nations.

Until you realize debt is caused by the fed, private banking and usury and not the poor, this is a pointless conversation.

So many believe that the poor are responsible for poverty. This is the biggest psyop in history.

Except for the Native American tribes that were in perpetual war and conquest.

How much further left will it swing before it swings back? We've gone quite a ways already under Obama.



I don't know..maybe what happened in France under Luis XIV? Something has to be done about the wealth, over the past 3 plus decades, being funneled to the top. When there is no longer a middle(as they are being pushed to the bottom) the top of the pyramid will inevitably collapse to bottom as well.


Something that needs to be pointed out here:

In a capitalist society, there will always be some degree of wealth inequality, particularly in one like ours where extended families do not live under the same roof anymore. The young typically tend to start out with little and as they work their way up in life, they save and acquire wealth. During a span of their most productive years, they can expect to be at least solidly middle class if not in a somewhat higher bracket.

During those times, they plan for their retirement. As they retire, their income drops and they drop down a bracket, maybe more, but if they were wise during their top years, they should be cushioned from falling to the poorest levels.

When our society is mismanaged by government, this order is distorted. And that's what we see. The young are not able to move into the producing sector because there are no jobs. The old cannot leave the producing sector because they can't afford to.

This is not a rich/poor problem, but at government problem a mismanagement of the economy problem.



Well, we are not talking about "some degree" of wealth inequality we are talking about the top 1% owning as much wealth as the bottom 90%. Which is massive wealth inequality.

We have tried the "trickle down" economics. Low taxes or subsidies for the "job creators" which is supposed to create more jobs and more wealth for the workers. But it doesn't. They take their subsidies or and hoard that money in offshore accounts so they never have to pay taxes on it.

They send the new jobs overseas, as well.

Does not matter to me if we disagree on the cause. If it continues, your worries of a "socialist" USA will matter very little.

We are nearing a tipping point.

Why do people even defend a thread with a title that should come from a b grade horror movie, it just proves someone has an agenda or is emotionally attached to an ideology.

There all crooks, and im sure we can at least agree on that part.

Now if you need to use big words to provoke an emotional response, well a time out might be needed.

Correct. In the same way that "Republicans are psychotic, sociopathic, soulless tyrants because that's what voters want".

I thought this had long been established simply by the history of people's choices.

Trickle up was such a dismal failure. Don't see why we can't try trickle up for a while and see how it goes.

ETA: Godless. Hilarious.

No the debt isn't caused by that.

It's created by social programs that were never intended to pay for themselves.

Which goes back to what I previously said. Rob from the rich. Give to the poor. So they can go out, and buy more stuff.

The fed's part in that is printing fiat currency,and devaluing the dollar.

Well CAPITALISM has been around since man has been calling himself civilized


Are you lying or just ignorant? We've only had money for the last few thousand years, and we've only had our corporate, capitalist system for about 100 years.

Corporate capitalism has turned into an evil monstrosity like communism, while there's plenty of socialist countries that don't suck.

Are you really that blind to your own hypocrisy? This entire thread — starting with the title — is nothing but one multi-post personal attack.
