    Can’t believe HH touched that poor’s face with his bare hand: you know they’re all riddled with diseases. Who says he isn’t brave?

    Time to have the servants clean the, uh… forget what they’re called… the letter-pressers on the clicky-clacky printer-thingy.

    The boat cracked in half is a nice touch since Tom Perkins was convicted of killing a man with his yacht

    The excessively rich should remember that lampposts can fill more than one function.

    Not that I’m expecting anything, but I’ve started a small business building guillotines…

    Bolling, you’ve hit rock bottom with this caricature. Unfortunately, this is pretty typical liberal representation of the evil money-bags capitalists. Maybe you should read a history book about what happens when the government steps in to redistribute the wealth. Stalin, Mao, the list goes on.

    Socialism redistributes resources, capitalism redistributes resources… in fact, every human society that has ever existed has had some system of redistributing resources. It’s simply a question of how it’s done and who benefits. I don’t think anyone is proposing a system that pretends to make everyone equal but many people have doubts about the wisdom of a system that takes from the poor and gives to the rich.

    Maybe YOU should read a book about the events that led up to the Great Depression.

    Yes, communism was specifically intended to be the antithesis of 19th century laissez faire capitalism but… at the same time trust busting and labor unions introduced the possibility that capitalism could become a democratic institution offering opportunity to all.
    In my opinion, both capitalism and communism are based on over-simplified (and provably wrong) models of human behavior. We need an economic system that recognizes that humans are both selfish and altruistic… that we play a complex social game that is not easily modeled by a small game theory matrix.

    Agreed.
    However, some people think they shouldn’t have to deal with complexity, so they deny the real world in favor of their simplistic models.

    Technically, Kristallnacht was the beginning of the Holocaust. But Hollingworth is so terrified of our zombie-like hordes, his confusion is understandable. And your alacrity is remarkable—that rich idiot just came out with the Kristallnacht remark a week ago. Oh well, when they write the material for you—for free!—you’d be a sucker not to jump on it. ;)
