There’s a hardly a “progressive” alive who isn’t a moron or a sellout
Seriously, listening to all the progressives either supporting the payroll tax rebate extension (an attack on Social Security) or saying that Cameron should have signed on to a forced austerity pact, I am reminded how mind numbingly stupid and partisan these people are. Scum. Evil. Stupid. I could have a small amount of respect for them if they were getting millions in order to sell out the people they say they care about, but many of them do it for free and the most of the rest do it for peanuts.
There is not an institution in existence, of any importance, which will not have to be torn down. Unions, corporations, schools, the UN, IMF, World Bank, WTO, they all have to go. All of them.
The oligarchs have made peaceful change impossible and the people have refused to take the few chances they had (many European countries had far left parties. Why weren’t they voted for?)
There will be war, there will be revolution. And there will be Terror. Hundreds of millions will die.
We had our chances. I spent 15 years of my life trying to explain how to save the old system, how to make it work. Others have spent decades. We failed. The oligarchs and the people, at every step, refused to do what was necessary. At every step small minded greed and selfishness won.
So it was.
Unwilling to give up anything to make our civilization actually work, many will now lose everything.
So shall it be.
We shall reap as we have sowed, and we shall know ourselves by our fruits.
