What She Said

EB Misfit puts pithily a fact that I have been raising for years, and on which I posted a few months back.
So we have two political parties who don't give a fuck about those who work for a living. I don't know what the alternative is right now. The Libertarians are, to put it succinctly, batshit crazy. There is nobody else right now. But history is clear on one thing: If a governmental system does not provide for the common good and only looks out for the already privileged, eventually an alternative arises. Most of the time, that alternative comes with a large butcher's bill and the end result is not very satisfactory.
Apparently it is very difficult for the rich and powerful to understand or remember that it's often in one's best interests to give up a little wealth and control. The word "tumbrel" should be circulating widely to remind them.
