On corporations and capitalism, do we include all corporations, or just one's that do not contribute to neo-Marxist causes, and and institutions? Do we realize how many of the rich contribute, and support, the Left infrastructure? The billionaires who contribute to each other's "charities?" Is, say, a Warren Buffett, or a George Soros, more palatable then the Koch brothers? If so, why would someone declaim corporations but avoid noticing how much they support the politics of the Left? I suppose a little 'baksheesh' goes a long way.

The fact that I am born in the US makes me guilty of a crime for which I must pay restitution. Nice! What a nice con. Get people to believe that they owe you money and then sit back and collect checks. Sweet! Just because the American empire runs like other empires doesn't make us guilty of a crime, but it makes us legitimate targets in the eyes of those who are being oppressed in the name of our interests. How could it not? I don't know what kind of money con you are talking about. Like Progressive politics is a big money maker? hahaha Hi! It is a weaponizing and monitizing of guilt, used to control people. Control them to do what? Build libraries instead of liquidating them to add a number in some billionaire's bank account? Libraries full of books that no one can read? Why can't people read? Education institutions that don't really educate. We agree on that, and the lack of money allocated for it isn't the only problem. Education in the US should be torn down to the bricks and redone completely in a way that is nearly the opposite of what we have now. Vouchers could work in theory, but without some kind of unifying curriculum and social experience to counterbalance, that will likely produce lots of brainwashed fanatics of every stripe. Nice idea! There is a saying that applies here. It is not possible to fix a real problem by just changing one thing. For sure, I'm talking in general principle here. ok Witness the numbers of people in the world that are completely reliant on a handout for survive! You mean the Defense contractors and beneficiaries of huge industrial and agricultural subsidies? Sure! but wait, not banks and insurance companies? Them too. Why not ban all corporations? No, wait, we might need them.... Rehabilitating them to be sub-human entities rather than super-human would be a good start. A corporation is mainly a way for wealthy people to cheat capitalism. Sure, and make lots of nice stuff cheaply too. ;-) Or make lots of cheap stuff seem nice to people who are too exhausted to know the difference. Craig -- nward!
