    Merkel’s party is basically center-right, the SPD (seen at the goal) is center-left and is a part of the coalition government now, as the earlier partner (a pro-business party) lost big time. Some pundits are hoping that the SPD can ameliorate the austerity programs and (perhaps) push for a more effective financial control for the EU as a whole. There really is no “socialism” in the sense that the Right Wing in this country uses it going on here.

    Socialism wasn’t the cause. Poor banking practices.

    Austerity during good times is recommended. Austerity during bad times leads to riots in the streets and dictatorship. Maybe that is what our oligarchs want here in the USA.

    You said, “Austerity during bad times leads to riots in the streets and dictatorship. Maybe that is what our oligarchs want here in the USA.”

    Honestly, I don’t think they are capable of such long range thought and planning as would be required for this to be a purposeful course of action.

    Never underestimate you enemy. They tried to take over in 1934 and the FBI had no knowledge of it. Surprised FDR. Lucky for us they picked a patriaot to lead their half a million man Veteran army. 1934. Failed but they suffered no problems. Still dealt with their friends the Nazis and other fascists because they were and are like them.

    So they took the long view. Win by attrition and taking over the game, the gambling house and destroying our Middle Class and at the right moment our economy to get the reigns of power to take over. It is working from what I can tell. Most of those working with them would not need to know anything about it. Now if I am wrong then we are just going to be trashed as a country from the inside. If I am correct they will take control and maintain our country but it will be a very different one.

    Have you read Kahneman’s book “Thinking, fast and slow”? It does not lead one to believe that humans are really capable of reasoning over all. Or, as Haidt has said,. the emotional tail wags the rational dog. This is why I have little belief in real organized conspiracies, even by the psychopaths of the financial “industries”.
