    You will be eating capitalism’s dust.

    Capitalism under the control of Plutocrats have very wide tires on their destroyers they are planning on flattening us all under their tread.

    I completely disagree. It is fairly easy to avoid being crushed by capitalism, which has no directed animus against anyone’s success, which is constantly providing opportunities even to those who have failed in the past, and which is not threatened by the success of others.

    That is not to say that capitalism is the last word for life or for a society; a person should personally cultivate social connections to provide what capitalism cannot, and our laws must provide fairness and may also provide a measure of protection for times of trouble.

    But there are few, if any, people living in a democratic society with a free market who are “capital’s road kill.” Indeed, there are few systems with fewer victims.

    Destroyers with tires? These would be the amphibious type then?

    Criminals having success isn’t something I extol and neither should you. Hard to avoid where the Plutocrats tentacles go since it is everywhere they have an interest in from surveillance to food.

    Hard to do when a certain segment of society have adjusted laws and have sympathetic men and women appointed to legal posts. Near impossible.

    Indeed, which is why traditions and mechanisms of classical liberalism such as open government, institutional checks and balances, and accountability to an informed electorate are so worthy of conservation.

    Considering modern Liberalism is also for those things. Yet they are being over turned institutionally since the Plutocrats and their many followers are bought and paid for to do the opposite.

    Communism always accomplished its own killing.

    You live well and comfortably while using the technology and services provided by those you demonize by your straw men label as Plutocrats. How long before you expect them to flatten us?

    Not all of the Plutocrats, just enough it seems to manipulate our country. We know of the Koch Bros. & Sheldon Adleson but there are others who thirst for control and keep out of the spotlight. Just because you are willfully blind to them don’t think there is anythy of straw about them. More of steel under velvet.

    They have been flattening us for some time. Most obvious starting in 1980 at the height of the Middle Class before it started moving downward. It wasn’t an accident. And they are long term thinkers here. Works better a bit at a time than all at once. People adjust to little increments than big ones. They don’t want to rouse us into the streets. They still fear us for that and that alone.
