it`s better to let the middle class get pissed off at paying high taxes than it is to let the bottom %10 to go full retard and overthrow the government.
Well lets face it the middle class is in general mortgaged to the hilt with kids in tow, they have no choice but to suck it up, they cant risk their futures .
They have us screwed any way you look at it.

a reply to: Deetermined No I won't, if I decide to use that book it would be for control of the weak minded. I will read 1984 before I ever open that crap again. I feel sorry for those that take it to heart and live their lives by it. It may provide good moral lessons but that is it. And before you ask yes I have read the new and old many of times.

So your goal is demoralization. Any polemic that does not contain a guide to action is an assault on human dignity. Your fatalism sounds depressing.
