Who’s Going to Pretend to Solve Our Financial Problems? 1 comment

Well, of course, the folks who created them in the first place:

The ruling class is the state. The state exists to serve the interests of the ruling class, and only the interests of the ruling class. They may promise you greater unemployment benefits, better health care, and a host of other government benefits — all benefits also paid for by you, please note (the ruling class does have a sense of humor, after all; vampires are often crudely funny creatures) — and those promises will cause most Americans to fall for the con still one more time.
Whatcha gonna do? Not a goddamned thing. Vote for McCain! Vote for Obama! It doesn’t matter. The ruling class wins either way. The ruling class always wins. That’s how the system was designed, and that’s how it works. For the ruling class, it works very admirably.

You really should be reading Arthur regularly!

    This is way too cynical. If you want to know where the problem with all of this lies, take a look in the mirror. We vote for these guys and keep asking them to give us more and more and more. Robert Samuelson, columnist for Newsweek, has a great book out called The Good Life and its Discontents. In it, he argues that we’ve become accustomed to economic growth and see it as an entitlement. When you combine this with Keynesian economics that believes the Government can manage the economy, you end up where we are right now. Massive debts and a banking crisis that was created because the government decided that poor people needed to own their own homes, too.
    The politicans didn’t come up with that on their own. We asked for it.
