Quote of the day

When I was young, I assumed that revolutions resulted from ideology, because idealists wanted a fairer world. Now, as we stare down the barrel of economic apocalypse, I realize that they're carried out by desperate people who have nothing to lose, in Marx's words, and everything to gain. They take stuff from the rich and write the ideological tracts after the fact.

If the corporatistas keep it up, the bottom half of the American public will have nothing to loose, and that's not healthy for the super-rich.
