American Capitalism - Inequality - Injustice
(Top Posts - Social/Legal - 070905)

Facts of capitalism, and of the modern day, as prac-
ticed in current times, in America, much of which is
but a sidebar to capitalist democracy?

o The enriched have little responsibility for the poor,
and only taxes (forced excising of riches) results in
any guaranteed relief (albeit at a minimalist level)
for some of the poor, with the enriched (some) brag-
ging about their meager (%-wise) donations to the
poor (with all due respect to the few among the rich
who donate an inordinately large percentage of their
income to the poor)

o The enriched get richer, the poor get poorer, the
middle class just gets by, barely, maybe, with the
exception of the upper middle class

o The enriched like the way things are, because they
benefit inordinately on the backs of the poor and
middle class, most, with the exception of the upper
middle class

o The middle class, in large measure, in America
at least, fantasizes about being rich, and despite
the fact that the overwhelming majority of them
will never be rich, their fantasies sustain them,
and fool many of them into endorsing the inequal-
ity inherent in capitalism

o The poor, in modern day America, demonized as
losers, along with those just barely holding their
heads above water, in the middle class, with an
inordinate number induced into engaging in illegal
activities to try to 'make it' in America

o Inequality, in America, worshipped, as if by making
society unbalanced, and unfair, there's good in
that, and by enriching the rich, and burdening the
middle class and poor, there's good in that, when
point-in-fact it's little more than ancient Rome at
play, with inordinate gain to the few, and the mas-
ses begging for whatever the rich are willing to
toss their way

o Divorced fathers, don't get me started on that,
for in America, fathers can be forced into poverty,
by law, and mothers married to rich husbands and
irregardless of their financial circumstances can
sit smugly, knowing their ex-husbands are living
in poverty, and knowing that whatever income they
receive from their ex-husbands, is income un-
needed due to the riches of their new partner,
and all of that called 'good' and 'just', in America

How much injustice will Americans tolerate? What
is the 'breaking point', the point at which Americans
say 'enough is enough', that the American govern-
ment is abusing its powers to such an extent that
it no longer is worthy of following?

Don't know, can't say, but I can say this, I can say
that the number one fear of Americans is not ne-
cessarily terrorism, per se, but is, instead, the un-
bridled and unrestrained power of the U.S and
state governments, a power which has, over the
past few decades, imparted inordinate control
to the few and the rich and the corporate interests,
and robbed the majority of Americans of their rights,
and privileges, so help me humankind, as no god
is my witness.

A most unusual call to populism? Indeed, and it's
up to us, only us, Americans one and all, to say
'enough is enough', stop robbing us of our free-
doms and liberty, stop destroying families through
divorce laws inordinately supportive of divorce and
inordinately dismissive towards victims of divorce,
stop encouraging husbands being treated as trash,
as disposable commodities, stop rewarding women
for dumping on and disrespecting their husbands
and disrespecting their vows to remain loving and
dedicated to their husbands, for better or worse,
richer or poorer.

Stop acting as if by taking one side of an argument,
all is fair. Stop pissing on the family. Stop fighting
Americans. Stop advocating treating Americans
as the enemy, rather than treating foreign terror-
ists as the enemy. Stop advocating pissing on the
4th amendment. Stop pissing on your own, and
start advocating treating America and Americans
as valued and cherished commodities, rather than
treating us as disposable waste if we don't kiss up
to the powers that be.

For crying out loud, recognize that America is the
land of the free, the home of the brave, and recog-
nize that the number one enemy of America is *not*
Americans, is *not* drugs, is *not* husbands, is *not*
families, but instead, is forces and powers outside
of America which wish to destroy us.

Renew the devotion to Americans, and America will
respond with genuine and sincere advocacy for all
that Americans stand for. Continue pissing on Ameri-
cans, and don't be surprised if Americans take heed
to the calls present in the foundational documents
of this country, the calls which state, in no uncertain
terms,

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men
are created equal, that they are endowed by their
Creator [and no, that isn't God, that's nature, in my
opinion and in the opinion of science, by and large,
despite the ancient myths still followed by many]
with certain unalienable rights, that among these are
life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

That to secure these rights, governments are insti-
tuted among men, deriving their just powers from the
consent of the governed.

That whenever any form of government becomes de-
structive to these ends, it is the right of the people to
alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government,
laying its foundation on such principles and organizing
its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most
likely to effect their safety and happiness.

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long
established should not be changed for light and tran-
sient causes; and accordingly all experience hath
shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer,
while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves
by abolishing the forms to which they are accus-
tomed.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations,
pursuing invariably the same object evinces a de-
sign to reduce them under absolute despotism,
it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such gov-
ernment, and to provide new guards for their future
security. ..."
